Pet and Animal Policy
Maxfield Property Management requires ALL HOUSEHOLDS to complete a third-party screening and review process. This process ensures that we have more accurate records while creating mutual accountability.
Pet Screening.com: is a third party provider of pet screening and evaluation. It allows customers to consolidate and manage information about their pets.
At least one individual must complete the documentation, regardless of whether you have No Pets, Household Pets or Assistance Animals.

We understand that your pet is part of your family. Compliance with our pet policy, communication and transparency is of the utmost importance. Pets are negotiable for all units, ,unless prohibited by the Property Owner and/or governing body such as an HOA.

Service Animals vs. Pets
Maxfield Property Management is happy to accept accommodation requests for both Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals (ESA).
Service Animals are not pets but not all pets are Service Animals.
A Service Animal is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Service Animals have been referred to also as support animals, guide animals and hearing animals.
A Emotional Support Animal (ESA) is a companion animal that provides therapeutic benefit to an individual with a mental or psychiatric disability. The person seeking the emotional support animal must have a verifiable disability (the reason cannot just be a need for companionship).
Approve Service Animals and ESAs are not considered pets under the law and as such Maxfield Property Management DOES NOT charge Pet Fees or DOES NOT require increased deposit.
Applicants that have a Service Animal or ESA should apply under the Assistance Animals link at Maxfield.Petscreening.com
