Pet Policy and Application
Charleston Metro Homes Real Estate is proud to be a leader in Charleston, SC for pet friendly rentals. Pet owners have been pleased to find properties available that are comfortable for them and for their pet, as all too often pet owners are hard pressed to find a quality rental that is also pet friendly.
Charleston Metro Homes Real Estate has a very basic pet policy. Most of our properties allow almost any pet you could imagine! We have had mastiffs and chihuahuas, cats and mice (not together of course), snakes, ferrets, birds and rabbits. We understand that a pet plays a significant part in many people’s lives, so we strive to allow most animals in most of our rental properties. Please make sure to ask if the property that has caught your eye accepts pets.
The only general restriction we have is that your animal must be one year of age or older. We are willing to work with some puppies and kittens,depending on age and training and the general application information of their owners; however this is handled on a case by case basis and you can expect to submit a $250 deposit in addition to the pet rent you will pay on a monthly basis (pet rent will be charged according to the anticipated full grown weight of your animal). If you have several pets, please call to make sure that we have a property suitable for a large number of animals. Regardless of prior consent, Charleston Metro Homes Real Estate reserves the right to have any pet removed from the property if it is determined that the pet poses a threat to the safety or condition of the property or any people in the property or the community.
Charleston Metro Homes charges pet rent each month for each of your animals. The term “pet rent” is simply rent you will pay for the allowance of your pet to occupy the rental unit with you. Pet rent is charged on a monthly basis and is paid with your rent.
The charges for pet rent as follows for different types and sizes of animals:
Dogs under 40 pounds $30
Dogs 41-65 pounds $35
Dogs over 65 pounds $40
Caged animals (per cage) $10
