I am curious, in a Rental Agreement there are the following stipulations for having pet(s) on the property:
- a non-refundable pet deposit be made (Payment)
- I think I can safely assume this is for any damage that might occur from having a dog present on the property.
- a slight increase in the rent for a pet.
Do these preventative measures alter the Wear and Tear conditions under which a security deposit can be used for repairs?
- can the Landlord take the money to repair normal wear and tear from having a pet in/on the property?
