If you live in a Pet Friendly Holton Mountain Rentals (HMR) dwelling unit and wish to add a pet to your Lease Contract, you must complete the Pet Registration Form below. You must complete a separate form for each pet you wish to register, up to the maximum number of pets allowed in your dwelling unit. See the Pet Rules & Regulations below for details. Upon submission of this Pet Registration Form, HMR will review your completed form. Once HMR approves the pet(s), a Pet Addendum will be created for each pet and must be signed by all parties to the Lease Contract. When the Pet Addendum is created, the $300 Non-refundable Pet Fee per registered pet will be charged to your account. When your Lease Contract starts, in addition to your normal monthly rent you will be responsible for paying an additional $30.00 per month rent, per allowed pet. HMR reserves the right to refuse any pet at HMR’s discretion. The Pet Addendum must be fully executed prior to the pet entering the dwelling unit. If a pet enters the dwelling unit prior to the pet addendum being fully executed for the pet, it will be considered illegal and Tenant(s) will be subject to paying an extra rent of $200 per pet, per day or partial day an animal(s) or pet(s) is in or about the dwelling unit or premises as stated in the Lease Contract clause “Pets” (Lease Contract, Article I, Section 3.6).
