Puppy

What? They Won’t Allow Your Puppy? No Dogs No Cats?

Is your favorite condo pet friendly?

One of the most common issues people have in moving down from a home to a condominium is the no pet rule many associations have. It’s a tough rule on families as the common response I receive is, “he’s part of the family”. We love them and they love us.

Soon after Kathleen and I moved into our condominium at Starpoint I noted the fact that we had to put up with rules and regulations as well as the actions of our neighbors.  I coined the phrase, “welcome to the condominium project”.

There were no pet restrictions. As a result the common areas were the potty place for some of our inconsiderate neighbors. That courtyard smelled badly after awhile and we had to give up worrying why the plants were dying and the ground dug up. What bothered me the most was when a new next door neighbor moved in. I met her in the elevator, I should say I met her and her dog in the elevator. “Is that a pit bull I asked”. ‘Yes, but she is harmless was her answer”. OK, how should I react? I have heard the pit bull tales. The no animal restriction policy got so carried away that I say no wonder some properties don’t allow them.

But they restrict cats too? How come these harmless loving animals are restricted? Note, I am a cat lover. We had two cats that lived to be over twenty. We couldn’t part with them. Waiting for them to die to move, and then the emotional pain of them getting so bad they had to be put away was terrible. But rules are rules, probably just some of the rules that may bug you when “joining the condominium project”.

Since it’s a common question, are pets allowed I am going to publish the Salt Lake City Condo developments that do and don’t allow pets.

I am referencing those which begin at $200,000 in price. Most under that price do not have pet restrictions.
