I agree with reverendsterling. If cats are allowed, snakes should be as well. Courts (in the US) have ruled that pet policies must be uniformed to be enforced. Generally cats are allowed because they make no noise and can be kept indoors. This being the case, they will not bother other tenants. Dogs barking and defecating in the common areas tend to be the reason dogs are prohibited. Since your snakes don't bark (I hope), and they are not routinely defacating in the common areas, I think you'll be ok. You may want to have a friend call the landlord and ask questions about their pet policy in regard to reptiles. Most apartments will openly give the info out as they don't want hassles later on.
