What if Someone Breaks into My Indianapolis Rental Property?

Posted by Devon Hicks on Feb 4, 2018 10:00:00 AM

As an owner of rental real estate, there are probably a few things you dread the most. Evictions, maintenance, and...break-ins.

Break-ins can be minor or extensive. They have the potential to leave your property heavily damaged and, if occupied, your Tenants feeling uneasy. 

Because of this, you should do everything within your power to prevent one from ever happening.

Do I Have to Allow a Service or an Emotional Support Animal in My Indianapolis Rental Property?

Posted by Devon Hicks on Dec 24, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Here at T&H Realty, we highly recommend that rental property Owners allow pets in their homes. It not only puts more money in your pocket, but it opens up your rental property to a larger market. According to a survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association, 68% of U.S. households own a pet. 

However, for whatever reasons, you may have decided that you don't want pets in your rental property, and that’s okay too. But what happens when an applicant has a Service Animal?

Or an Emotional Support Animal?
