I’m seeking urgent advice on this. I’m in negotiations to buy a property that was previously pet friendly but brought in a blanket ban in 2013 (the real estate agent was unaware of this when we started proceedings).
The vendor is the secretary for the Oweners Corporation, so when I brought this to their attention, she scheduled it as a motion to be overturned in the next AGM and since received this email from the Strata Manager:
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>”I have spoken with the committee and they are happy to allow the pets and have the pet by-law adopted and the decision ratified at the next Annual general meeting.Could you please complete the attached pet application form and send it back for consideration asap.”</p>
The issue is that the next AGM isn’t until December. I am hoping to exchange contracts this week prior to an auction at the end of the month. My conveyancer is very hesitant as she said that until the by-law is repealed I am not protected legally. I understand that changing by-laws is a fairly lengthy process and will cost me.
The real estate agent and vendor have given me lots of assurances (“only the vendor and co-secretary actually turn up to strata meetings and vote etc etc) but I’m very nervous. It is absolutely unconditional that I can keep my pet with me in any building that I buy.
Should I have more confidence now that this ruling has been overturned?
