If you are looking for pet friendly condos, which is really dog friendly condos, in Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Hollywood, Lauderdale By the Sea, or Deerfield Beach, you will be able to find condos that are pet friendly above. Condos in Fort Lauderdale that are pet friendly are becoming rare, because almost 75% of the condos in the South Florida area have some type of restriction on pets. Some of the pet friendly restrictions really only relate to large dogs, but condo associations have chosen to restrict all pets in a lot of cases. The best thing that you can do if you are searching for a dog friendly condo in the Fort Lauderdale is to ask your realtor to check which condos have restrictions, and which condos are pet friendly. You may actually be surprised to find a condo that you like has restrictions that you can live with. A surprising fact is that the more a condo costs, the less likely the condo is likely to have restrictions on pets. Logically, the reason seems to be that developers looking to sell expensive condos will not want to impose restrictions on buyers, but whatever the reason, if you are looking for a luxury condo, you will have a lot easier time to find luxury condos in the Fort Lauderdale area that will allow you to have a pet or a dog when you purchase a condo.
Another fact to consider is that condos for sale that have pet restrictions, will have even more sever restrictions if you lease out your condo to a tenant. So, if you own a condo, and you intend on renting the condo, you will want to check with your board of directors, or the condos rules and regulations that govern the condo.
Pets and condos that allow pets have had recent changes because to the fact that if your pet is an emotional support animal, Federal Law will allow you to have a pet in a condo, even if the condo has rules which do not allow pets. You need to be careful though, because the condos that do not allow dogs, may have specific procedures that you have to follow in order to have your dog approved as an emotional support dog, and associations may contest your ownership if you do not follow these procedures. The rules that they can adopt have mainly to do with having the proper documentation that shows that there is a need by you as the owner as well as the dog being able to satisfy this need. If you have any questions, you may want to seek the advice of an attorney.

Searching fror a pet friendly condo in the Fort Lauderdale area just got easier, If you have suffered from the pains of looking through listings and not been able to separate the condos that allow pets, especially dogs, we have provided a list of the condos that are pet friendly in the South Florida area.
When you are searching for a pet friendly condo in cities like Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Hollywood, or Hillsboro Beach, you should remember that finding the condos that may allow pets is only half the search. Finding out which condos that will allow your pet is the other half. What are the exact rles that the condo has is the important question, and you should ask before you consider making an offer to purchase the condo. You might think that any condo would allow 2 6 pound poodle, but there are condos that will actually interview your pet, and if they determine that your pet could be a nuisance because of barking, you may have issues getting your dog approved by that association. The number 1 reason why dogs are not permitted is the type of dog that you own, with the rules being designed to eliminate the notoriously mean dogs like pit bulls. The number 2 reason why a dog is not allowes is simply the size and weight of the animal. This seems to be a logical reason, and some associations will have this rule, even though it may be unsupervised or uninforced. There have been many cases when an association has a 20 pound pet policy, and when fido moved in he was 18 pounds, but because fido enjoyed the condo life so much that he forgot to exercise, he balooned up to 25 pounds, and the association simply could noy realistically evict the dog. These cases are generally handled by the association with some sympothy, but there are associations that would make a case out of this, and get their lawyers involved. The best this is simply ask the association how lax or strict their rules are as they relate to the pet policies.
