Someone needs to spell this out in the documents from the state. I was unaware. The realtor added a pet fee from the potential renters suggestion to my lease. Both tenant and I signed. I have kept all deposits but the first months rent in a interest bearing account under my name and tenants name and have not touched it. The tenant is now not paying rent, trying to charge for frivolous and unjustified things and demanding the pet charge back immediately with threats that it's illegal for me to have collected it in the first place. All Landlords are not bad and the way some of these renters treat you, I'm surprised anyone even puts there property out there for rent.
