PET DEPOSIT

An additional security deposit to cover any damage caused by a pet. If a tenant causes damage (and it is NOT due to the pet), landlords generally cannot withhold the pet deposit and apply it to the damage. In some states, a pet deposit is a specified allowable amount over the maximum security deposit.
