our condo has a no pet policy however unit owners have been geting letters from their doctors recommending that they need a pet for health(mental) reasons. Must we allow the pet based on a doctors letter?
Also what rules and regulations may be inforced for those owners with pets such as pet must be carried in common areas,where pet must be walked etc.Thank you
Hi. Assuming a person has a letter from a doctor, I believe you must allow them to have an animal. Set up association rules, in terms of where they can walk the dogs. You shouldn't have any problems if the rules are made available ahead of time.
I don't know if you have to, but it would be a great thing if you did. There would have to be rules set down ahead of getting the pet so there want be misunderstandings later. They would have to have a common area for the dogs to get their exercise and to do their constitunial. The owners of the dogs should be responsible for picking up and bagging the pet's deposits.I imagine you would want a pet deposit, but these could be waived if you deemed approperate based on if the condos are rented or owned by the owners of the pet.Great thing you are doing if it doesn't become a regular habit of tenants having to have pets.
