Pet Deposit


Pets are welcome at Steeple Chase Apartments. Pets are meaningful to many residents as they provide companionship, safety, and service for the families. Cooperation between management and residents is required in order to promote compliance with pet regulations through responsible pet ownership.

Management Approval

Management must pre-approve all pets before the pets allowed in any apartments or on the property. Owner and management reserve the right to allow or disallow pets on the property or in any apartment.

Additional Deposit

There is a maximum of two (2) pre-approved pets per household. An aquarium of 15 gallons or more, or a cage will be considered one pet. A deposit in the amount of $300.00 will be required before the pet agreement is fully executed. This deposit is in addition to the move-in security deposit. The additional deposit is conditionally refundable and may be applied to any damage or breach of the resident. Any services required for damage assessment or damage repairs will be charged against the additional deposit according to state laws. Additional deposits are not required for service animals.

Reasonable Accommodation

If an animal is required as an accommodation, the resident is encouraged to complete a Reasonable Accommodation/Request Verification form. Preferred Capital will waive standard fees, restrictions, and/or additional deposits if the presence of a service animal is verified to be a reasonable accommodation for a disability. All rules and policies apply to service animals, with the exception of insurance and deposit requirements.
