Windsor landlords snake pets property management

Dangerous pets have been in the news a lot lately.

This is an important wake-call for all Windsor Landlords to do inspections to make sure your tenants and your rental properties are safe and secure.

There Have Many Recent Examples of Problems

According to a report on the Mississauga landlords site, police were recently called to a Brantford, Ontario motel.

A motel guest notified police he suspect a guest in another room at the motel had a lot of snake in his room with him.

Yes, snakes.

When police arrived they found the guests along with five young children (one was an infant) … along with 40 pythons.

The police found the snakes in plastic storage bins in the room. The snakes were in distress and not being taken care of property.

Against the Law

It is illegal in Brantford to own a python. It goes against the City bylaw.

And the Stories Continue

According to the Barrie Landlords Association tenants have been given one week to get rid of their exotic pets.

A Barrie man has one week to get rid of two Red Tail Boa Constrictors in his home where two young children live.

That’s after he was already given 30 days to get rid of them.

Two Barrie police officers went to a Worsely Street apartment today with Barrie by-law officers. The man was charged with harbouring exotic animals.

Last month, by-law officers heard the man had the two snakes in his apartment and gave him 30 days to remove them. He didn’t.

Because of the two children under the age of five living in the apartment, the Simcoe County Children’s Aid Society was notified.

 Excellent Property Management

Successful landlords regularly check to know what is going on in their rental units. Regular inspections are part of good property management.

Always make sure to provide property notice before doing any inspections or entering a rental property that has tenants.
