Restricted BREEDS OF DOGS

Some insurance companies will not write or renew homeowners or renters insurance policies for people who own a certain kind of dog. The companies worry that they will face large claims if a dog injures or even kills someone at the home. According to InsuranceYak.com, dog-bite claims cost insurers almost $350 million in 2002, which accounted for 25 percent of all liability claims. Unfortunately, even a “good” dog of any of these breeds will not be allowed to reside or even be permitted on any of our properties.

Tenants found to have any banned dogs on our rental properties, even to visit, will be immediately evicted. Owners that give permission to tenants to have dogs that are on this list will be asked to provide proper insurance coverage. Safety should be a real concern for us all.
