: I recently bought a coop in queens, NY. The seller told me that dogs were allowed in the past, but they weren't sure about now. I was given copies of three sets of coop house rules and my proprietary lease and nowhere does it say I cannot have a pet. The board had said that it does not allow dogs, but other pets are ok. I would like to bring in a dog but am not sure if I am within my rights as owner. Any help?
Read the pets section on Tenant.Net.
Search for pets on Housing Court Decisions.
Basically, since there is no written rule against dogs, you have a legal right to adopt one. (note: nothing 'they said' counts now: you have a written contract) But: you might alienate your new neighbors & business partners...
Why not call the lawyer who helped you buy the coop? After you do the homework...
