Get-My-Pet Welcomes You With Open Paws

Why Get-My-Pet ?

Body Corporate Advocates

Get-My-Pet was born out of my own issues in dealing with a stubborn Body Corporate committee.

I'm an animal lover like you.  I think that just because someone lives in a unit doesn't mean they shouldn't have a pet.

I'm also for animals.  Small and sensibly sized animals.  If you want a German Shepherd and you live in a one bedroom CBD apartment then I'm not for you. Sorry.

The cost of owning a pet in Australia is estimated between $1,000 and $1,400 a year according to Money Smart (and $3,000-$6,000 in the first year according to the RSPCA).  Why not invest a small sum upfront to secure permission for your pet without all the hassles?

I do the letter writing, attend the Body Corporate meeting whenever it is held (by telephone or Skype), attend any conciliation or adjudication if required, and keep you informed at all stages along the way.

I've been Body Corporate committee member and I've heard the committee excuses:

  • It'll set a precedent.

  • It'll start a flood of applications.

  • I don't want a cat living next door to me (yes that one is real - actually said by a committee member)

  • A previous owner had a pet and .....

  • There'll be noise.

  • The committee will be liable for any damage or injury.

  • It's not safe in the environment.

  • Keeping a cat indoors is cruel.

  • This is a "No Pet" complex.

  • The owners took a vote and the majority of people don't want pets.

  • Or - insert your own excuse here!

​​​​I'm an advocate, not a lawyer, so I don't charge like a lawyer.  I charge one set fee, up front, all inclusive.  No extras, no charging by 6 minute increments, no disbursements, no hidden fine print.

I draw on my experience and breadth of knowledge of the precedents in this area of Body Corporate law.

Bodies Corporate don't like me and that is fine, I don't live in your complex with the committee members. You can outsource that stress and inconvenience to me today!

If you own your unit, flat or apartment in a Body Corporate.

If you're currently renting a unit, flat or apartment in a Body Corporate, and you know you have your landlord's written approval in the rental/lease agreement.

Unfortunately the first thing you need as a rental tenant to get a pet, is written approval from your landlord/real estate agent in your rent/lease agreement.

 

Our Customers

Can We Help You?

For Owners

If you own your unit, flat or apartment in a Body Corporate, you might have considered getting a pet before but your blood ran cold at the thought of the Body Corporate process.

You may have seen or know someone else who tried to fight the Body Corporate and had no success.

Don't despair!

There is no reason you should not have a pet (a small sensible size pet) and I can help. 

I do the writing, the meeting, the mediation or the conciliation if you want me to.

For Approved Renters

If you're currently renting a unit, flat or apartment in a Body Corporate, and you know you have your landlord's written approval in the rental/lease agreement; you might want to get a pet but don't know how or don't know how to navigate the Body Corporate system. 

Don't despair!

There is no reason you should not have a pet (a small sensible size pet) and I can help.  I do the writing, the meeting, the mediation or the conciliation if required.

If you do want to pursue an application, just bear in mind if you ever have to move you will need to get both your new landlord and new Body Corporate approval to have the pet at the new property.  Pets can live up to 20 years so it's a big commitment to make while you're renting.

For Renters who do not have Approval

Unfortunately the first thing you need as a rental tenant to get a pet is written approval from your landlord/real estate agent in your rent/lease agreement.

 

Even though I could make application to get a pet, when I succeed I would be putting you in breach of your lease.

 

I can't do that because it's not fair on you.

 

If however you would like some general advice on what your options are, or how to approach your landlord/agent then feel free to contact me.

What I need from You

To complete your application you must provide me the necessary information including the:

  • Registered name of your Body Corporate,

  • Community titles scheme number, and,

  • Regulation module that applies to your Body Corporate.

If you do not have this information, first check on your body corporate levies notice.  If you can't find it there, contact the Titles Registry on 1300 255 750 before you start the process. 

You will also need to provide the name and contact details of your Body Corporate secretary and the Body Corporate manager (if you have one).

If there are any prescribed application forms the Body Corporate uses to consider matters at committee meetings I'll need those too.

Finally, if you can supply the wording of the relevant pet by-law (if there is one) that'd be great!

Sorry if that seems a lot but it'll be the end of what you need to supply me - I'll take it from there.

Information on the different regulation modules can be found here.

 
 
 
 
 

Price List

I charge one fee, once.

If your Body Corporate requires a conciliation hearing, I will pay the fee and can attend with you.

If your Body Corporate requires an adjudication, I will pay the fee and can attend with you.

If you decide to discontinue your application, and I have not met any expenses - I will refund your application fee 100%.  If I have paid expenses and/or incurred time, I will refund the balance of your application fee.

Doing it that way puts the imperative on me to resolve the matter efficiently.

It also creates no risk for you.  You know what you're up for and it won't change.

A few Questions of General Advice

Free

Have questions about me, or about your matter and just want to run them past me for an opinion/my thoughts?

That's free.

You deserve to know your options before you commit to anything.

Application for a Pet

$275

I write your application to your body corporate in a way that considers the relevant precedent in these matters, as well as taking the emotion and frustration out of the process for you. 

 

I can also attend the body corporate meeting with you, by phone, if you would like. I highly recommend you attend so you are privy to the body corporate discussions.

I may need some local knowledge including details of animals in your immediate area and old committee or AGM meeting minutes if you have them.  If you don't have them I may need you to obtain them as you are entitled to records held as discussed here.

*If your matter fails to resolve at the application/committee stage and you want me involved in the conciliation there will be a small additional fee which will be invoiced separately.

Conciliation

$375

Discovered me after you have applied to your body corporate and want me to finalise the matter with you? 

This includes writing a support letter for your conciliation application considering all the relevant precedent, paying the conciliation application fee for you, attending the conciliation with you by phone (or in person by arrangement).

I can do all of that for you, one fee once.

I may need some local knowledge including details of animals in your immediate area and old committee or AGM meeting minutes if you have them.  If you don't have them I may need you to obtain them as you are entitled to records held as discussed here.
