Can landlords apply pet restrictions or pet bans?

Yes, landlords can apply pet restrictions, provided that the pets are not service animals. Animals like Ferrets, Hedgehogs, monkeys, squirrels and gerbils are all illegal to own as pets in California. If someone is caught possessing these animals a civil fine can be given from a range of $500-10,000 dollars, as well as the costs of the animal’s removal, storage and care. Criminal prosecution can also occur as a misdemeanor, that is punishable by up to six months in county jail or a fine of up to $1,000 dollars.
