Selection: Score and Pets (by Dee [MD]) Posted on: Jun 15, 2019 7:05 PM

Hello,

I advertised our rental and seeking prospective tenants with good credit score and no pets. I do received interests that don't meet my reference. It has been almost a month. Which order should I reconsider for the following?

* high credit score (>700) with a pet.

* Lower credit score (650-675) without a

pet.

* Which is worse? cat or dog? And which type(s) to avoid?

I was advised that a cat may has less damage than dog. Your thoughts? However, when a cat does damage, it would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Diem

Say no to puppy's and kittens. People just don't know how to care for them. Older animals that are "fixed" and house broken, and have a good nature can make excellent pets and tenants.

One applicant had a 4 year old dog that didn't know not to jump on people. Rejected. Another applicant didn't know the time line to fix their kitten...If not done before a curtain time, it will always stake it's territory by peeing on everything.

My sweet spot for credit is about 630-680. You don't want the folks to be too good nor too bad with the scores.

As long that you inspect the current home about the pet - you should be alright --24.101.xxx.xx

So a couple has a 9-year-old Siberian/tabby. This is a note from them: He is 12-14 lbs and completely healthy - no medication, etc. His two moods are friendly and fearful, meaning he's polite or he hides in a bedroom.

Thoughts? So this is not fixed and when that is critical? Should I ask for the cat medical record?

Thanks. --173.79.xx.xxx

That Siberian is probably on your insurance company's dangerous dog list.

Never rent to a fearful dog. Most dog bites are from fearful dogs. They bite because they are afraid and get cornered and don't know how to defend themselves.

If you rent to dogs, they must either come out to meet you with tail wagging enthusiasm, or they must allow you to touch and pet them with complete indifference while they focus on their owner and no concern about you. --98.146.xxx.xxx

Oops. 12-14 pounds.

I had to look it up. Siberian Tabby is a breed of cat. An expensive cat.

The only thing I can see about it is that they are chatty, which wouldn't be good in an apartment building.

I don't take cats, but if you take cats, I can't see why there would be any difference in cat breeds, except maybe a Siamese who are sometimes really noisy.

I find it really odd that a tenant would spend a lot of money on a rare cat breed. --98.146.xxx.xxx

If the resident spend big money on a rare breed, I am inclined to think that they will be even more willing to look after the pet.

I typically don't hold items against the pets - it is the irresponsible pet owners that are normally at fault --24.101.xxx.xx

This's an engaged couple with scores >700 and high 600. The cat was breed by the girl's mother. We have hard wood floor and tiles. The home is newly renovated with better products. The concern I would have is cat hair in the ducts and vents, should I?

Thanks. --173.79.xx.xxx

At $25/month, you can pay for a great deal of duct cleaning when they leave --24.101.xxx.xx

[[[[[....... The cat was breed by the girl's mother......]]]]]

If it is a family that makes money by breeding cats, I would worry about them breeding cats in your unit. --98.146.xxx.xxx

The mother that does breeding lives in another state. The girl is an engaged one. --174.204.x.xxx
