Condominum Boards try to ban unit owners from having pets, citing the Condominum Actt,y the Declaration and the By-Laws of the Condominium Corporation.
An outright ban, is not in keeping with Rule s58 of the Condominum Act which states that
The board may make, amend or repeal rules respecting the use of common elements and units to,
(a) promote the safety, security or welfare of the owners and of the property and assets of the corporation; or
(b) prevent unreasonable interference with the use and enjoyment of the common elements, the units or the assets of the corporation. 1998, c. 19, s. 58 (1).
The rules must be reasonable. The animals have to be a threat to the safety, and security of the unit owners.
