ALWAYS READ STRATA BYLAWS WHEN YOU BUY A CONDO! NOT CHECKING PET RESTRICTIONS WILL COST YOU MONEY!!
Many people (like me!) think of their pets as being part of the family. When buying a condo people often overlook whether or not their pet will be welcome or allowed in the building they are buying. This oversight can be very expensive.
In the video, I relate the story of my client who bought a place privately before he met me, only to realise there were no pets allowed in his new condo. He had to sell this place and buy a new place it is was not cheap. Always check those pet restrictions!
Have a look at what the respected national law firm Heenan Blaikie has to say on pet restrictions and condos for the legal perspective.
This is what the British Columbia government says about pet bylaws in Strata Properties. Remember a Strata can restrict pets based on size, number, breed, weight. Always read those bylaws and check the Strata minutes for any impending changes to the pet bylaws that may occur after Completion.
