We love pets!!
Most of us at Boardwalk Realty & Development have them. Sadly, we
have found that a few dog owners do not properly tend to these
animals. We have experienced past problems with flea infestation,
soiled carpets (as well as other dog-related damages), odors that
cannot be removed, and owners that allow their dogs to use the
common areas as litter boxes but do not clean up after their dogs.
During the time that we permitted dogs (one per unit and no larger
than 25 pounds) we found residents that were keeping several dogs
and some that even brought vicious breeds to the properties. We have
also experienced irresponsible pet owners who leave their dogs
unattended for several weeks or owners that permit dogs to bark
through the night thereby disturbing other residents. We have even
had residents that expect us to find dogs that have Kennel Cough and
have infected other dogs. Managing these issues has become
overwhelming and detracts from our efforts to provide our residents
with great places to live. We have opted to provide great places for
our residents to live instead of managing dog problems caused by a
handful of irresponsible dog owners.
We work very hard to provide our residents with clean, quiet,
comfortable and well-maintained residences as well-kept common areas
but have found that dogs, ferrets, lizards, and rodents of any kind
are not compatible with our properties and our goal of providing
great places and great communities for our residents. We are unable
to keep the properties in the kind of condition that we can be proud
of when dogs, lizards, rodents, or ferrets are present. Our goal is
to become dog-free communities at all of our communities by June 30,
Existing residents that had dogs before we initiated this policy are
permitted to keep them provided that they have paid the $300
non-refundable pet deposit and pay the $25 monthly pet rent.
Existing residents that did not have them at move-in and new
residents are permitted to keep 1-dog (that weighs no more than
25-pounds when fully grown) with payment of a $300 non-refundable
pet fee and $25 per month for pet rent. Complaints from
neighbors about ill-behaved dogs, excessive barking, dogs that
attack other pets or people, dogs using the property as a litter
box, and dogs damaging the property will have to be removed
We also permit cats and rabbits (one per apartment). A
non-refundable pet deposit of $300 will be charged. A rent surcharge
of $25 per month will also be added to the monthly rental rate. Fish
are happily accepted and there is no deposit for them.
