Now that the snow is melting, the common grounds can tell tales of those not following pet rules. If your Association allows pets, most have similar rules. A common one - pick up pet waste immediately. Please be courteous and respectful of your community by helping to keep the grounds clean. Please also review your Governing Documents, as oftentimes, the Association is empowered to assess the cost of repairing turf damage back to the offending party.
Another common pet rule is to ensure they are always on a leash when in Common Areas. Additionally, many Associations have a policy about not leaving a pet unattended.
It is important to note that not only are these things possibly against the rules of the Association, but most Cities have ordinances making these common pet issues illegal.
Living in an Association comes with the right to an enjoyable living environment for all. Having pets is a privilege provided by the Association’s Governing Documents. Please help preserve the former so that the latter can be enjoyed.
