Does Fido Get to Join Me in My Franklin TN Condo?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Franklin Homes Realty LLC

Does Fido Get to Join Me in My Franklin TN Condo?If you are a pet owner looking to buy a Franklin TN condo or townhome, make sure you get a copy of the Covenants, Codes and Regulations (CC&Rs) prior to writing an offer. Some condominium developments limit the number and size of the pets you may be allowed to have in the condo and common areas.

This recently occurred when a buyer realized the condo development where he was looking to purchase did not allow dogs over 80 pounds. He has, not only one, but two St. Bernards. Not only are they big, they can be quite messy.

Review the CC&Rs carefully. If there is a restriction, check with the HOA to see if they will make an exception. If not, you may want to look for another development.

Different complexes can have different rules...weight, height at the shoulder..number of animals...since to their owners, they are family members, it is wise to know only those complexes that accept the kinds of pets who will be residents.

Good morning, Tammie.... each of our new condo projects had different restrictions on the weight of the pets and how many..... all allowed at least one pet..... but there are some resale condos that do not allow any pets....

Yes, this is so important.  There are many in our area that don't allow any pets.  Those places reduce their values as pet owners will not live there.

You should do a post on which places allow pets as I'm sure a lot of buyers are searching for that.

Good morning Tammie. What an important point. It's not always clear cut but absolutely necessary to do your homework before you shop. Suggested.

This is very good advice for those looking to buy a condo in Franklin TN. I, for one, would never leave my 3 dogs and 1 cat behind!

Good morning Tammie,  That's how we got our dog. Our daughter moved in an apartment complex 14 years ago and then was tod she couldn't have her new puppy, so we ended up with a new puppy.  He will be 15 this October.

Tammie,  Who could say no to those two handsome fellows.  Is it something to consider.  Showed one recently where they didnt allow any pets and yet there were hoards of people out walking their dogs along the complex.

Tammie, As an owner of several units in a townhouse community I get calls from prospective tenants and buyers asking if they can have their big dogs. Why would anyone want to coop up a big dog in a townhouse and not have a place for them to run? Of course we say no.

A very important consideration Tammie...our little terriers are family members so I certainly would want to make sure my clients could bring their fur babies with them. Knowing the restrictions in the CC&R's before making an offer will save everyone disappointment.
