My issue is this. I use a version of Frank & Daves lease. It limits to two pets 35lbs or less. No dangerous breeds. I have a 2011 house I’ve been trying to sell for nearly 2 years. Turned down several for various issues, including big dogs.
I have a qualified couple who want the home. They would be putting about $3K down payment and I’m carrying the remaining $27K for 10 years. They will not come without their 75 lb Lab. I checked into separate dog insurance they can buy. My carrier (Mobile Ins) says get the $300K pet policy and they are ok.
My question is, what am I starting here? Will this be a positive if I accept them if they self insure the dog, or should I just say no, the 35 lb rule stands. I don’t want a short term gain that turns out to get me sideways with current/future tenants, or other unintended consequences?
Appreciate any experiences, wisdom, etc.
