Asked and AnsweredThe co-op I’m interested in is pet friendly and I have a dog. Is there any chance the Board could approve my application without approving my pet?
Yes. Even when a building is “pet friendly”, a problem can arise with your particular pet. If your pet is large or is a dangerous breed, a pet friendly building may have restrictions that relate to a pet’s size or breed. Further, a building may not allow an apartment owner to have more than one pet or an exotic pet. To safeguard against the unwanted situation of a board approval without pet approval, the contract should provide for approval of both you your pet. Good boy.
