Jeff is correct even though some things vary city to city, state to state. I would expect the landlord to pay for trash pick up, water and any maintenance issues that occur naturally (ie. a water line leak.) Problems that are the issue of the tenant (i.e. a floaty toy that plugs up the toilet) will be charged to the tenant. Items like the yard maintenance is up for negotiations.

Hi Greg,

Take a look at Pets and People Homefinders they may have pet friendly homes in the areas you are looking into.

It is good idea to get a pet reference letter from your current landlord. Providing photos of the dogs or a pet interview can also help sway the owner or manager of the building. I suggest pet owners offer at least $50 more rent per month to increase the chances of approval over an applicant that does not have a pet. You may also be required to get renters insurance which will usually cover any personal liability you would have if your dog bit someone.
