Do we want a right to companion animals?

By johnboy 3 August 2008 85

It’s a subject dear to my own heart at the moment, and something that’s increasingly coming up in stories posted by other users.

Body corporates and lazy property managers are imposing blanket bans on companion animals (aka pets).

It’s a problem that, for once, actually can be dealt with by legislation.

So here’s the deal.

I, personally, will preference any candidate at the upcoming election promising a right to reasonable companion animal ownership, one which overrides any body corporate agreement or lease condition, ahead of all other candidates.

Anyone else with me on this one?

A right to reasonable pet ownership in rental agreements and body corporates

Ahh I get it. The Tenant has to agree to the ban.

Ridiculous. Take it or leave it is exactly how it should be.

I do agree that this is a lazy way to operate, but surely the owner could stipulate to the property manager than pets are okay?

so long as both the tenant and the landlord agree

Why have legislation if this is the result?

Surely some sort of education campaign is the thing to do here?

Rather than an iron fist government decree?

I don’t think that is even the way to go. Let society work this out for itself. Pluralism will be the result, not uniformity.

Clown Killer said :

I would imagine that under the proposed changes there would be no problem with restricting pet ownership in rental properties – so long as both the tenant and the landlord agree.

Are you separating that from body corporates? Otherwise I don’t understand what you mean. Surely by your own words, that is what the legislation proposes to do.
