Don’t Make These Mistakes with your Rental Property’s Pet Policy in Alexandria
It’s not always easy to know what the proper protocol is surrounding pets when it comes to your rental property in Alexandria. Don’t make these mistakes when advertising for tenants or collecting the security deposit!
- Don’t say service animals aren’t allowed. You’re legally required to accommodate service animals under the Fair Housing Act (FHA).
- Don’t neglect to collect a pet fee. This should be collected along with the security deposit to repair any damage the animals may cause during their stay.
- Don’t forget to specify types of animals. You may choose to allow only dogs, or only cats, or only small pets such as rabbits and birds. It’s up to you, or you may allow all!
Whether or not you choose to allow animals as a landlord in Alexandria is up to you, just remember that service animals are always allowed!

Alexandria Area Information
Like the rest of Northern Virginia, as well as central Maryland, modern Alexandria has been shaped by its proximity to the nation's capital.
It is largely populated by professionals working in the federal civil service, the U.S. military, or for one of the many private companies
which contract to provide services to the federal government. Old Town, in the eastern and southeastern areas of Alexandria and on the Potomac
River, is the oldest section of the city, originally laid out in 1749, and is a historic district. Old Town is chiefly known for its historic
town houses, art galleries, antique shops, and restaurants.
Alexandria has many recreational interests including park system with approximately 950 acres spread across 70 major parks and 30 recreation centers, of which Chinquapin is one of the largest.
Chinquapin offers facilities for swimming, tennis, racquetball, and other sports. The city also organizes several sports leagues throughout the year including volleyball, softball and basketball.
A portion of the Mount Vernon Trail, a popular bike and jogging path, runs through Old Town near the Potomac River on its way from the Mount Vernon Estate to Roosevelt Island in Washington, DC. There is also a largely unbroken line of parks stretching along the Alexandria waterfront from end to end.
