Does Home Information Network/Mark V. Financial allow pets or smoking?


We do not allow pets or smoking on the premises of our buildings. Smoking can cause some serious damage to a building and is not desirable for many tenants. When it comes to animals in the building we are very strict on this policy. Some of our buildings do allow small pets but it would require extra security deposit and sometimes even extra rent. Although I am sure your pet is very well trained, some animals have been known to destroy a building and we want to avoid any unwanted scents, commotion, noise, damage or waste clean up due to a tenants pet. If you have questions or concerns regarding this policy please call one of our agents for clarification. All service animals require proper certification that must be submitted to our office before signing of the lease.
