Bell Properties Pet Policy

Many of our homes are pet friendly and will accept a maximum of 2 pets. If you apply for or reside in one of our homes and wish to have a pet, you will need to complete an online pet profile and pay a non-refundable pet application fee of $20 for the 1st pet and $15 for the 2nd pet. To start this profile please visit

If your pet is approved you will need to pay a non-refundable lease administration fee of $300 plus a monthly lease administration fee of $10 for one pet or $20 per month for two pets. Bell Properties does accept assistant animals per state and federal guidelines. If you have an assistance animal, you will need to complete an online animal profile. There is no application fee for this process. 

If you have a pet there is an additional per pet application charge which is administered by a third-party pet screening tool.  All PETS must be approved by the Property Owner and/or BELL Properties.  If a pet is allowed there will be a one time Pet Administration Fee of $250 and additional pet rent of $25 per month per approved pet. In addition to Pet Rent, you may be responsible for a Pet Liability Fee. The Pet Liability fee is determined based upon the "Paw Score" that assigns to your pet. This score is determined using a proprietary formula that takes into account things like pet age, per breed, pet size, etc. Pet Rent and Pet Liability fees are both monthly charges.

5 Paws $25/Mo Pet Rent $0/mo pet liability fee
4 Paws $25/Mo Pet Rent $5/mo pet liability fee
