Don’t Make These Mistakes with your Rental Property’s Pet Policy in Washington DC
It’s not always easy to know what the proper protocol is surrounding pets when it comes to your rental property in Washington DC. 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 Washington DC is up to you, just remember that service animals are always allowed!

Washington DC Area Information
The National Mall is a large, open park in downtown Washington between the Lincoln Memorial and the United States Capitol. Given its prominence, the mall is often the location of political protests, concerts, festivals, and presidential inaugurations. The Washington Monument and the Jefferson Pier are near the center of the mall, south of the White House. Also on the mall are the National World War II Memorial at the east end of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Directly south of the mall, the Tidal Basin features rows of Japanese cherry blossom trees that originated as gifts from the nation of Japan. The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, George Mason Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and the District of Columbia War Memorial are around the Tidal Basin.
The National Archives houses thousands of documents important to American history including the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Located in three buildings on Capitol Hill, the Library of Congress is the largest library complex in the world with a collection of over 147 million books, manuscripts, and other materials. The United States Supreme Court Building was completed in 1935; before then, the court held sessions in the Old Senate Chamber of the Capitol.
