The Berkeley is pet friendly.

We welcome your small pets of 50 pounds or less, usually cats or dogs, pending a "pet interview" prior to move-in. We reserve the right to limit breeds and weights. There is a $250 non-refundable pet fee per pet. No exotic pets, large lizards or snakes. If you have a unique pet other than a cat or small dog you feel should be welcome, such as small fish tanks, birds, and small furry friends, please ask.    

Pre-leasing

The Berkeley does pre-lease apartments. Pre-leasing is a form of reservation system for apartments. The Berkeley can not guarantee a specific apartment at the time of pre-lease. Pre-leasing allows the future tenant an opportunity to select apartments ahead of prospect walk-ins and The Berkeley staff will contact the future tenant to select an apartment. The steps to pre-lease an apartment are:

  1. Applicant completes an application and pays the applicable application fee.
  2. If applicant is approved, the applicants complete a lease agreement without specific unit information. Applicant will indicate desired move in date and pays a security deposit. Security deposit will be refunded if applicant does not sign lease with actual apartment indicated on lease.
  3. Thirty days before desired move-in, applicant is contacted to select a specific apartment home.
  4. Lease is completed with apartment information. Prior to receiving keys to apartment, applicant completes normal process of paying applicable rents, pet fees, and switching utilities to tenant’s name.
