I think Joe is right. You'll probably have to take what you can get at these prices. Rents have just gone us so drastically this year, there probably will not be a lot of choices in the $600 price range.

I would contact your current landlord tacfully explain your concerns and apologize for any problems. It is important if your next landlord calls they leave good feedback. If you feel as though it is unfair you are losing your whole deposit that is another thing. Feel free to contact me directly so I can better assist you. I look forward to speaking with you shortly

Good Afternoon
There are no hard or fast rule for allowing pets this is a case by case basis. This is an area where you have to decide what you are comfortable with. Judging by the tone of your email you do not seem very comfortable with the idea, in which case it is probably best to say no. Best of Luck to you!

Hello Dee,

COngratulations on your move to Fort Worth! It's a great place to live and the rental process is pretty easy.
There is typically a fee charged ($50 per person average). You will be asked to fill out an application. The
listing agent/property manager runs a credit report and background check. The owner/landlord has decision making power. So you may find some flexibility if you need it. Hope that helps. There are many other details if you have further questions. Please feel free to ask me.
Regards, Mary Margaret Davis
