When is the landlord liable for a dog bite or other injury caused by the tenant's pet?

Each state has different laws but here are some examples of when landlords could be held accountable: (1) they knew the animal was dangerous, (2) they have the ability to remove the animal, or (3) they harbored or kept the tenant’s pet, such as, cared for or had some control over the animal.

What our clients say

“Prompt professional service. They’ve been insuring my dog daughter for several years now and I’ve NEVER had an issue to date. (hope that never changes!) I would highly recommend! My most recent policy was ending during COVID, but they still helped me renew in a timely fashion online, being I was an existing customer. But someone there in the office also always had time to answer any questions on live phone conversations when I needed. Gave thorough explanations and even remembered my name from previous conversations. Very professional! I feel comfortable that my dog is insured through them. I could get a bundled rate with other companies on a renters insurance policy but I’d rather keep renewing with XINSURANCE, I feel more comfortable every year when they complete my policy. Since being a client, I don’t even shop around every year when it comes close to renewal time. I trust their service. No need to worry about looking for a cheaper plan or this or that. The price is extremely fair, competitive and sometimes even cheaper than others. My dog daughter and I are good where we are!” [SIC]

– Jason King

“They were the only place that I could get the insurance I needed to save my dog’s life. Tyson Lindsey put up with a barrage of emails and calls from me, handled them with extraordinary patience, and was just generally fantastic. From the point of view of someone who previously worked in insurance, I know how difficult it can be to place certain risks, and honestly I’ve never had a better, easier experience with a company that insures had to place risks.” [SIC]

– Megan Sacks

“So far, we are very pleased. Trying to find insurance, for our dog, has been near impossible. She is a Australian/German Shepard mix, and considered a “vicious breed”. The only thing she wants to do is play wit hher ball, and lick you to death. XINSURANCE was the only one that would cover her for liability, that we could find.” [SIC]

– Susanne Meeson
