This post is dedicated especially for those individuals who have considered becoming pet owners in the near future. Current pet owners are welcome to share their experiences, however an assumption is being made that those who have had pets for some time, have already figured out the best living arrangements for themselves and their trusted companion or companions.
Before I continue, I wish to quickly clarify the differences between apartments and condos. This is important because it’ll save you time when looking for a pet friendly complex, but also because it will give you an ante the next time an owner of a Condo-unit says that they don’t allow pets.
A Condo is a building, or complex of buildings containing a number of “individually” owned apartments or houses. An apartment is a building complex that is owned by a group of individuals or a specific shareholder. Generally if an apartment’s policy does not allow pets, the rule applies for the entire complex. However in the case of a Condo, since different individuals own the units it is up to the respected owner, to allow or disallow the housing of pets in their unit. This is where that ante mentioned earlier comes of use. Considering that you choose to stay in a Condo, simply put; “if one owner says they don’t allow pets in their unit, you can find an owner who does”. Please keep in mind that different owners may allow some species and sizes of pets but not others, so you may need to put sometime into contacting a few owners. It’s advised to get assistance from a real estate agency, when trying to negotiate the freedoms and limitations of Condo units, as “decreed” by owners, since communication may be prone to misinterpretation at this phase. A real estate agency that I would recommend is Shambhala Realty Co, Ltd; they are currently the only real estate agency that provides assistance regarding pet friendly housing, and are renowned experts in the matter.
