Rentec Direct, the highest-rated property management software, recently announced a new resource for pet-friendly property owners and managers. Powered by a collaboration with PetScreening, the only centralized pet-screening database, property owners and managers are now able to outsource their pet risk assessment and legally verify assistance animals at no charge.
“Pet-friendly property owners and managers must protect their property from irresponsible pet owners and pets with a history of damage, and also must adhere to federal guidelines when accommodating assistance animals,” said Rentec Direct President Nathan Miller. “This collaboration allows managers to not only streamline pet-screening but legally and easily navigate verification for assistance animals.”
PetScreening’s first-of-its-kind screening platform allows a pet-owning applicant to pay a nominal fee at the time they apply for a rental home and enter information about their pet(s) into the database. The platform then will analyze housing-related risk based on various pet-related factors, including a community’s specific restrictions, such as breed, weight, and age. This serves as a streamlined way to comprehensively evaluate a specific pet and pet owner who wants to live in a rental property. Additionally, PetScreening helps with assistance animal accommodation request validation through a comprehensive legal and FHAct/HUD guideline review process that is free to the requester. Property owners and managers that have a strict no pet policy are not qualified for this program.
"Pet ownership is on the rise which correlates to more residents accompanied by a pet or an animal," said PetScreening COO David Stunja. "This partnership will give property owners and managers easier access to our platform that helps mitigate housing-related pet and animal risks and generate more pet revenue opportunities."
Rentec Direct clients can look forward to an integration within their property management software that will allow property owners and managers to be updated right in the system when a new pet enters one of your properties or a given pet's risk-score changes.
