State Specific Question About: COLORADO (CO)

Long-term landlord here who is looking into rental properties in Colorado Springs. Question: Is pet rent common like it is in the DC area? My husband and I disagree on this one. I think it is only common in the east coast. Please advise.

Thanks! --97.117.xxx.xxx

Lisa,

Look up some apt complex websites in your area.

BUT...

know that some offer free pets as a hook to grab interest.

I'd be surprised of any area did not charge for pets. It's an easy extra source of income.

My son rented an apt for a year in Denver, paid pet rent for his doggie.

After the registration fee to interface the photo vet records I understand it all along the east coast, but have to ask why fishing on the western banks of the Mississippi would be any different. --76.188.xxx.xxx

Lisa,

Apt websites are a quick way to see what is going on in your target area.

A two-minute search showed me complexes charging $150 nonrefundable fee per animal plus $20 $35 Per animal per month.

If this helps, I charge $150 nonrefundable registration fee per animal plus $35 per animal on the rent and people are fine with that. We rent too many residents with two animals, Bringing in an extra $70 per month per house. People want their animals and are willing to pay for them!

My side comment is to discourage long-distance rentals. Very difficult even with a hired property manager.

Normally we try not to rent to clients w/an animal, However, we decided differently this time. Asked for $300 non-refundable animal fee deposit plus an additional $45 a month & they thought that was great! Happy Happpy Happy --64.130.xxx.xxx

Fran: Hopefully you didn't call it that on paper actually. To be clear, there is no such things as a "non-refundable deposit." Deposits are refundable by definition. So, you should call things like that a "non-refundable pet FEE", not a "deposit."

Just throwing that out there so that others don't make the mistake. Otherwise, good advice! :)
