Why am I not allowed a inside cat in a Retirement Village? – Angela, QLD

Why oh why am I not allowed a inside cat in Retirement Village? Had to get a home for him. Such a stupid rule. No luck with letters. I need an assistant cat to keep me company at this stage of my life. Any help? No animals allowed and I have a valid reason for one.

Hello Angela, you will need to understand your scheme’s animal by-law if you wish to keep animals on the property. If the by-law is prohibitive, you can propose a motion to change this by-law or attempt to resolve this with the Body corporate and state your case.

If these steps fail, and you wish to pursue the matter, try conciliation. You may refer to the government page for more information: https://www.qld.gov.au/law/housing-and-neighbours/body-corporate/disputes
