Pets and Animals
Step 3: Solutions for owners
Here’s what to do now that you’ve identified your issue.
Consider your first step
Did a neighbour or your condo corporation claim that you are causing a pet or animal issue or are not complying with your condo’s governing documents?
Here’s some suggested actions you can take depending on your situation:
Comply with what you are being asked to do.
Respond to the party that contacted you. Consider using the templated letters at the bottom of this page and keep a record of your correspondence.
Review legal considerations and ask the sender for more information.
Determine what to do next
Do you believe your corporation’s governing documents need to be changed? You can read more about how to raise your concern with the board, but you must still comply with them in the meantime. Communicate with your board early and often about this so you may open the door for a quick resolution. Owners or condo corporations may file a Tribunal case against you if you do not comply.
You may wish to seek legal advice from a paralegal or lawyer licensed by the Law Society of Ontario.
