Customer Question

We have a second home condo in Daytona Beach but they do not allow animals is there a way we can legally have our cat there with us? Is there a law that would allow for us to have him there with us? Thanks for your answer.

Hi Diane,

My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
When a person buys a home in an area that is governed by a board, they're agreeing to abide by the laws of the community. One of the things the board has a right to regulate is whether a person is allowed to bring pets into the community.
The law requires a condominium association to allow service or emotional support animals for residents who have disabilities, but there is unfortunately no right have a pet in a community that doesn't allow them. Animals that are trained to provide assistance are not considered pets and cannot be prohibited.
