Unfortunate Damages To Your Rental Or Home

Those of you who are renters may have had disheartening “no”s when you were apartment-hunting. Pet damages that incur to your landlord’s property can cost a lot to repair. Though your renter’s insurance liability may cover a portion of the damages, your renter’s insurance will not cover those damages. This is why many homeowners and landlords will say “no” to renters with pets.

 

The Government of BC has stated that “tenants are responsible for all damage caused by pets. If a pet damages a rental unit and the landlord requests repairs, the tenant must make the repairs or the landlord may apply for dispute resolution” (1).

Fortunately, there are more rentals available for pet owners in recent years. One thing to consider is the hefty pet damage deposit that you must pay at the beginning of your rental agreement. Just be sure to take precautions and train your pet well in order to get that pet deposit back at the end of your tenancy.

 

Here’s a great resource we found for you on the Government of BC website.
