I guess it's not technically a pet deposit, it's just advance pet rent, I suppose, or a "pet fee." "Deposit" seems to suggest it's refundable, but it's not.

Texas is pretty owner-friendly--I don't think there are a lot of limits on things like that. The regular deposit is held aside, and can only be used for certain things, but the pet fee is pretty wide open. (I use a management company).

On mine, I have the $300 pet fee, and a $300 damage deposit. That will go up next time around for a new tenant if current tenant doesn't renew.
