Because they destroy the house, rip up furniture, walls, and just cause plain damage. Also there is a thing called barking which most of your neighbors cant stand. They should ban all pets everywhere.

Most places i feel dont allow pets

(1) possible noise from barking dogs
(2) people donot cleanup after thier dogs
(3) people leave thier cats when moving ,only to become a feral problem for the area

ultimately ,its because of irresponsible pet owners

Most landlords don't want to be bothered with the issues that come with renters having pets. Having worked for a large residential management company for years, I can tell you most pet owners leave apts with at least some damage. Stained carpets, floors, scratched walls, floors, cabinets, etc...Then there's the issue of barking dogs, people not picking up after the dogs, dogs biting and scaring other tenants.
I'm sure your mom's pets are small, quiet and well cared for, but landlords don't always want to take that risk. Try to find a house rental. There are many 2 family houses in Lyndhurst. good luck!

I'm gonna have to go with todd on this.

Newarkbomb, your best bet would be offering up cash as a separate pet deposit. The landlord may accept, they may not, but with the number of renters out there, why should they bother with pets? Sorry, but thats just how it is.

While I have always desired having a pet where I rent, it has never been allowed in my lease. The next place I move I am hoping I can get a cat. I know that I would be a responsible pet owner for many reasons; consideration to the landlord's property being only one of them. But, ironically, if I were a landlord I would NEVER allow pets - even with the most conscientious of owners they can get sick, have accidents etc., which over time will cause damage. Not a headache that would be worth it to me to deal with. So, as a renter, I understand the frustration of wanting a pet & the lease not allowing it. I can also put myself in the place of the landlord however & understand the reasoning.

Your pets might be angelic creatures that damage things, don't smell, don't make noise, etc, etc.

But other people's pets are not. The landlord can't tell the difference and banning pets is the easiest solution for them.

It's simple risk management. People with pets on average result in damage to the property and the annoyance of neighbours more than those without. Just like people with crappy credit reports on average result in more late payments and non-payments of rent than those with good credit reports.

It's got nothing to do with you and your pets, it's just the past performance of other people's pets.

No worries m8.

Anyways...Our condo allowed pets. We had none. Well, our neighbor had the dog that would scale the walls all day. Dog was left alone during day and whenever they went out and the dog just moaned and barked and scratched, all day long. Well, needless to say our 2 years sharing the same wall with these clowns was no fun at all. It was a total nightmare. Just one of the many reasons why we moved. Next time if we would move (which we would never again share a wall with anyone anyhow) we would only move into a no pets building. You live and learn. I still dont understand why people would raise a dog in NYC/ Jersey city/ or any other urban area with no backyard and keep them locked inside all day.
