Pets are allowed at almost all of our properties. Our general policy is as follows:

  • We generally allow one pet per unit, however the final decision on the type and number of pets is up to the property owner.
  • For information specific to the property you are interested in, please refer to the property ad. For instance, if the property ad states, “No fees, No Deposits”, then that particular property does not require any additional fees or deposits for pets. However, the breed restrictions on this page still apply.

Monthly Fees: For pets under 20 pounds there is a $15.00 monthly fee. For pets 20 pounds and up, there is a $20.00 monthly fee.

Additional Security Deposits: If the pet is under 20 pounds, there is an additional $150.00 security deposit. If the pet is 20 pounds or over, there is an additional $200.00 security deposit.

The monthly pet rent is intended to cover additional wear and tear caused by pets. We understand that it may not seem like your pet contributes to the wear and tear of your place, and the additional rent is not meant to be a penalty. It has been our experience that items such as flooring experience more wear and tear when a pet occupies the unit than when one does not.

There are certain breeds of dogs that we are not able to accept. These breeds include, but are not limited to; Akitas, American Staffordshire Terrier, American Pitt Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Terrier (Pit Bulls), Chow, Chow Chows, Chows, Presa Canario, Rottweiler, Doberman Pinshers, Shar peis, German Shepards, Presa Canarios, Wolf Hybrids, animals with a bite history, trained attack dogs, or trained guard dogs.

If you are interested in one of our properties and have a specific question about your pet(s), send us an email at Please include the property address, the breed, age, and number of pets and your specific questions.

Lawson Realty Group has managed my father’s and my properties for ever 12 years. They simplify the business of owning properties by providing comprehensive services from initial leasing services to ongoing maintenance to lease close-out. They are always available to serve tenant needs and answer my questions and treat each of my properties as if they were their own. Their services allow me to focus on my business while resting easy in the knowledge that my property investments are being properly cared for. I would recommend their services to all.

Hi Rob, Thank you so much for the excellent work you have done managing my house in Roanoke. I’ve appreciated your interest and concern and the businesslike way you have managed maintenance and marketing. Best wishes to you and your family. Hope you have a joyful holiday season and a peaceful new year.

We used Rob as our purchasing agent for our recent move. Rob is a very experienced and hard working professional. He assisted us in all areas of our purchase, from finding the perfect home to securing financing, and finding professionals to help us with some renovations. Most importantly, however, is the issue of trust. Like many areas of life, you have to work with a REALTOR you can trust, and I trust Rob implicitly. I would highly recommend Rob for all of your real estate needs, whether you are purchasing, selling, looking to rent your property, or simply need some knowledgeable advice.

Rob made what is typically a very stressful situation a fun and enjoyable one. He went out of his way to guide us and make time for us.His knowledge of the area was a great asset in helping us choose the location we wanted to live. He took the time to answer every question we had, making us feel as comfortable as possible, as we were first time buyers. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone in need of a Realtor. He has an amazing personality, is very easy to work with, and makes sure you are 150% satisfied!
