It is strictly at the Homeowner's discretion and decision, depending on the Pet and how many. Preferrably matured, trained animal under 20 lbs is usually acceptable, with a Pet Deposit of course.
I ask first before showing anything that does not specify pets ok
I agree with Jill Murty. I would ask first. If they say it may be considered, then yes - show the property but if it is a strict "no pets allowed" policy then why waste your time showing?
Show all property and go from there.
If a renter was extremely interested in a property where the listing stated ''No pets", I would ask if a pet would be considered prior to showing the property. Sometimes the landlord will consider a pet if the prospective renter has excellent credit, etc. If it's a definite 'No', there's no point in showing the property.
Landlords have rules for a reason.
If no pets are allowed why waste time.
I check the status of the pet policy first.
I only show them homes allow pets. Do not waste time.
I call the agent and ask before I show.
I only show them properties where the pets will be allowed.
Well after learning my lesson, I generally refer renters to someone else unless they pay my fee up front or plan to buy within the year. That weeds out the unreasonable and time wasters.
