It's rare that landlords will come right out and list a property without knowing more about the pet ... thus the case-by-case basis. There will assuredly be an additional deposit, some or all of which will be non-refundable.

In addition, insurance companies publish a list of breeds which are not acceptable, and are excluded from any liability coverage. This is another reason why landlords want to know more about the animal ... many insist on seeing it before approving the tenant.

It may seem a bit over the top, but owners are turning over a six-figure asset to a total stranger, and prefer to err on the side of caution ... I'm in total agreement (and I've got three dogs).

Best of luck ...

Lula,

This home says no pets right in the listing details (sorry). I just did a quick search of homes up to $1750/m, 2000 or newer, min 4 bedroom single family homes that are 2,000sqft or larger in this MLS grid 13..

None appeared in my search of northwest Houston (MLS grids 10,13 and 14) that said "yes" to pets, but 14 said case-by-case basis. This means they need to know more details about the pets, what type of additional deposit your willing to provide, etc.

If you would like to see this list, send me a quick note.
