If you own a townhouse or apartment, you’re most likely part of a body corporate. This is the collective of owners responsible for managing and maintaining certain aspects of the property and setting and enforcing the rules for all who live there.
If you’re also a pet owner, these rules will cover your furry friends – not only to ensure they’re welcome, but also to create a balanced coexistence between all residents – with or without pets.
The rules are called by-laws, and each set is specifically tailored to the building they regulate. These, along with government legislation, will define the type and number of pets each occupant is allowed, including where they can and can’t be within the complex.
This ‘pets and apartments’ resource hub is the first of our ‘learn more about where you live’ series for those in a body corporate. The resources are all free, and designed to support owners with insights, best practices, and expert perspectives on their shared community.
