I’m in the process of purchasing an apartment. Can I get assurance pet approval will be granted before I buy the property?

Whilst some strata committees are willing to consider applications for pets prior to purchase, in reality, most pet applications are not considered until after settlement. As a result, the best thing you can do is your due diligence.

First, when obtaining the contract for sale, have your solicitor review the by-laws to see if there is a valid pets by- law and if so, what requirements and restrictions does it contain for the keeping of pets.

Secondly, make enquiries with the strata manager (and if possible with a member of the committee) to see if the owners corporation has allowed pets into the strata scheme and if your pet application is likely to be approved.
