Should pets be allowed in the lease? What are the pros and cons for a landlord?

What do you mean by "should"? You're thinking "there oughta be a law?"

I'm a landlord myself and I do not allow tenants to have pets. But I feel I am closing myself off from a huge percentage of a market. So im trying to see the pros and cons of actually allowing pets.

If I was a person looking for an apartment and had bad allergies to pet dander, I would prefer you "no pet" rule a blessing. That way I know the carpets would be clean of dander and piss. That's kind of a rough word. Smile

I think that allowing pets does open the doors to a fairly large base of renters not catered to by the majority of rental properties. That being said remediating from pet damage can be rather expensive, and the remediation needs to be 100% or a person with allergies can no longer live there. Perhaps make some of your properties "pets allowed" and some "no pets allowed" as a fixed designation for each.

I would only allow pets if all of the floors were impermeable, such as tile. I know a guy who OWNED his own house, yet let his dog urinate everywhere and rarely cleaned up after him. The result was hardwood floors with deep stains that could not be cleaned up. Imagine how this guy would treat YOUR carpets and floors.

I'd need about a $10,000 deposit against pet damage before I'd even consider it, and even so, I'd still probably not allow pets.

If I was a landlord I would definitely not allow any pets in my house for the Renters, I do not think allowing pets would help me to get more renters.

Pet owners know all of the ups and downs of traveling with pets. Often, one of the most challenging aspects is finding pet-friendly lodging.

I have to agree. As a pet owner Its not easy to find places where me and my pet can crash. But I don't mind the restrictions. I also understand that there are people in this world that could die with just a whiff of my pets fur.

Spain has always been one of the premier timeshare destinations in Europe, it's beautiful beaches, azure oceans, stunning landscapes and rich culture all contribute to an experience few can get in their own home. If you're an animal lover, chances are that you've often struggled to take you pets away with you when travelling to your destination. Well, luckily enough the number of pet friendly timeshare resorts is on the rise.
