Pet & Animal Policies

A welcoming and safe environment is paramount to all of our residents. To help ensure ALL of our residents understand our pet and animal-related policies (No Pet and Animal Policy / Pet Policy / Animal Policy) we require EVERYONE to complete a third-party screening and review process. This process ensures we have formalized pet and animal-related policy acknowledgments and more accurate records to create greater mutual accountability. Please find the category below that best describes you to get started

  • No Pets or Animals

    There is a required pet screening process for anyone that does NOT own a pet or animal. This is to obtain an acknowledgment that you do NOT own a pet or animal.

  • Household Pets

    This is a required application process for anyone that owns a household pet. Household pets are typically only dogs and cats but might include pets that live in cages such as birds, hamsters, rabbits, snakes or fish tanks (because of the contained water) so please check with Hoffman Realty for clarification regarding what types of pets the property will allow.

  • Assistance Animals

    This is a required review process for anyone with a non-obvious disability and disability-related need for an assistance animal. This process provides a HIPAA compliant and secure way of submitting a reasonable accommodation request for an assistance animal (service animals, emotional support animals, companion animals, etc.) that will be reviewed by a third-party legal review team to ensure the accommodation request meets HUD’s Fair Housing Act guidelines. There is no cost ($0) to you to submit an accommodation request. Please make sure you are aware of Florida's law for fraudulently representing a service animal.

* NOTICE TO ALL RESIDENTS & APPLICANTS: Everyone must complete the screening process. This is not only for pet and animal owners but also for residents and applicants that DO NOT own a pet or animal.
