What are the pet policies & fees, & how does the application process work?
If pets are allowed at a property, there is a two pet maximum and a non-refundable pet fee of $500 per pet. This fee can be paid over three months for one animal or over six months for two animals. At move out, any tenant with pets agrees to have the unit professionally cleaned and any carpets steam cleaned. This fee does not cover any damage caused by the pet or the cost of cleaning (if necessary). Please note, the pet fees do not go to Tandem. There is an additional $75 added to the administrative charge to Tandem for leases with pets.
Pet owners must provide documentation of a check-up by a veterinarian within the past calendar year, the pet’s shots are up to date, and a picture for Property Manager’s records prior to lease signing.
