Thomson Bill

One of the questions I frequently get from clients is about the legality of pet restrictions in CC&Rs. When searching for a dog friendly condo complex it is important to study the CC&Rs of the Homeowners Association. Look closely at when the CCR&S were adopted and if there are any revisions. According to the Thompson bill no common interest development governing document created, entered into, modified or renewed on or after January 1, 2001 may prohibit a homeowner from having one pet. Since this law is not retroactive, it is important to look for the date of adoption or modification. If the Homeowners Association had CC&Rs in place that have not been modified before January 1, 2001 they are legally able to restrict pet ownership.
