Dogs may be permitted to accompany residents attending the Gushul.  Certain rules and conditions apply as outlined in the Pet Agreement Policy.  This agreement must be signed by the Resident and approved by the Landlord for the agreement to be valid.  If approved, a separate non-refundable pet fee is required as follows:

Non-Refundable Pet Fee:

One month: $100.00
Half month: $75.00

Fee Payment:

Fee Payment is made in two installments. Each installment is half the total Residency Fee. The first installment is due following confirmation of the Residency. Please note that, in case of cancellation, half of this deposit is non-refundable; however the whole amount may be applied towards rebooking, provided rebooking occurs at the same time. The second installment is due three months prior to the residency period. If cancellation occurs less than three months in advance of the start date, the full amount is non-refundable; in some cases, a percentage of this fee may be applied towards rebooking.

Non-refundable Pet Fee is paid separately from the Residency Fee and is due at the same time as the residency second installment payment (3 months prior to the residency period).

Rebooking Fee:

If rebooking is requested by the Resident, a rebooking fee of $100 (for both full month and half month bookings) will be charged (COVID restrictions are the exception).
