Well, yes. D & R Properties takes pride in the houses and
duplexes we handle and by charging the current market price for

Can the Tenant repaint, replace the carpet, put up or

No. We have each of our units just the way we want them. The

pictures on the wall.
Do you allow pets?
Do you allow dogs?
We Are Cat Friendly! Cats are allowed, but it does depend upon the
specifics of the individual house. Cats must be current on
shots, prevented from having unwanted litters of offspring, and
not allowed to harm the unit. Flea control products must be
used. All male cats must be neutered, and cats must be
consistent in using a litter box.
Pet fees and deposits are calculated as follows:
Single Cat: Non-refundable pet fee of $75 and an additional
(refundable) $125 deposit.

(refundable) $300 deposit.

We Are NOT Dog Friendly! Beginning July 1, 2008, D & R Properties will no longer
allow dogs In many units. Although we have allowed Tenants to have a dog in
the past, provided they followed our rules regarding their
upkeep and that they paid a $150 pet fee and $350 pet deposit,
we have found that many Tenants failed to follow our rules and
have allowed their dogs to ruin our carpet and floors. Carpet is
one of the most expensive items in a house, and with the recent
trials in the economy, carpet and labor costs are increasing.
$350 is not enough money to cover these costs. However, what is
even more expensive than carpet is real hardwood floors which
were recently ruined by a Tenant’s dog that was allowed to
urinate repeatedly on the floors.
