How to deal with pet issues

Many enjoy owning pets and consider them as part of their family, but they can also be a source of conflict.

Step 1. Identify the issue

Many boards have requirements in their governing documents that are intended to create harmonious living for residents and their pets. Most disputes regarding pets or animals will relate to a condo’s governing documents, what they say and if they are properly enforced by the board.

Here are some common examples:

Keeping pets that are not allowed by the condo

A pet is causing a disturbance

Residents not cleaning up after their pet

Residents keeping a pet that is dangerous or illegal

We encourage condo communities to work collaboratively to resolve noise issues before they escalate. Continue to next step to find out more.
