In compliance with state and federal Fair Housing laws, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and FS 1084, Siesta Dunes Condominium Association, Inc. adopts the following policies and rules. Section 10(D) of the Declaration of Condominium authorizes the Board to adopt rules to regulate pets and animals on Condominium Property. The Board has adopted a rule to prohibit tenants and guests from bringing or maintaining a pet. The rule permits each unit owner to maintain a single pet not to exceed thirty-five (35) pounds in weight at maturity. The Board currently plans to enforce this pet policy subject to accommodations required by law. A resident (owner or tenant) has the right to request an accommodation. The request shall be in writing and addressed to management personnel. The communication shall make clear that the person is requesting an exception to the pet policy because of an asserted disability. In the event the person’s disability is readily apparent or known, and the need for the accommodation is also readily apparent or known, such as, but not limited to, a request for a seeing-eye dog by a person with a sight disability, no further information shall be necessary or requested and the person with disability shall be granted the accommodation subject to the rules hereinafter set forth. In the event the person’s disability is readily apparent or known, but the need for the accommodation is not readily apparent or known, the person with disabilities shall
provide information necessary to enable the Association to evaluate the disability- related need for the accommodation. The information must show the relationship
between the person’s disability and the need for the requested accommodation. According to Florida Senate Bill 1084 adopted in July 2020, in the event the person’s disability is not readily apparent or known, management has the right to request that the person provide specific information regarding the nature of such person’s disability. The person with disabilities shall provide information necessary (1) to verify that the person meet’s the legal definition of disability (i.e., has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities); (2) to describe the needed accommodation, and (3) to show the relationship between the person’s disability and the need for the requested accommodation. The need for an ESA must be directly related to the accommodation. Information identifying the particular assistance or therapeutic emotional support provided by the specific animal must be provided from a health care practitioner or similarly licensed or certified practitioner or provider in good standing with his or her profession’s regulatory body in another state. Such information is reliable only if the practitioner or provider has personal knowledge of the person and his or her disabilities, has met the person at least once face-to-face, and is acting within the scope of his or her practice. “Internet certificates” in the absence of such personal knowledge and documentation by a health practitioner personally familiar with the tenant and acting within the scope of his or her practice are not by themselves, reliable documentation of the need for an ESA. In most cases, an individual’s medical records or detailed information about the nature of the person’s disability shall not be required. An emotional support animal registration of any kind, including but not limited to an identification card, patch, badge that the animal wears, certificate, or similar registration obtained from the Internet is not by itself reliable information sufficient to establish that a person has a disability or a disability related need for an emotional support animal. As to service animals under the ADA, the person with disabilities shall provide information to establish: (1) that the dog is a service animal required because of a disability, and (2) to describe the task or work that the dog is trained to do. All information provided by or on behalf of a person requesting an accommodation hereunder shall be kept confidential and will not be accessible by other Unit Owners or third parties unless they need the information to make or assess a decision to grant or deny a reasonable accommodation (e. g. counsel for the Association) or disclosure is required by law (e. g. a court-issued subpoena).
If the Association, through action of its President or Vice-President, in accordance with this policy, with the input from Association counsel as necessary, approves the requested accommodation of an assistance or service animal, the following rules apply: For the safety and protection of all individuals, animals must be carried or kept on a leash at all times when outside the Unit. Owners are required to carry the implements necessary for cleaning up after their animal. Dog waste must be collected and deposited in the trash in a secured plastic bag. Cat litter must be put in a secured plastic bag and deposited in the trash. Assistance or service animals will not be permitted in the swimming pool. Due to the concern for neighbors and potential nuisance problems, patios or balconies may not be used for housing animals when the Owner is not simultaneously on the patio or balcony. No dog shall be housed or treated in a manner that results in unreasonable, persistent or continuous barking. The Owner of the assistance or service animal shall obtain and maintain all licenses, permits, vaccinations, and inoculations for the animal required by any governmental entity, including but not limited to, the State of Florida or Sarasota County. The Association requires proof of compliance with state and local requirements for licensing and vaccinating each emotional support animal. If a person requests to keep more than one emotional support animal, the Association may request reliable information regarding the specific need for each animal. The cost to repair damage to the Common Elements caused by animals will be billed to the responsible Owner and shall paid within ten (10) calendar days. Should the assistance or service animal become a nuisance or exhibit hostility to any person within the Condominium Property, or should the person granted the accommodation otherwise fail to follow the applicable rules concerning animals, such violation(s) will be enforced in accordance with the provisions of the governing documents and all applicable laws. Moreover, in the event of a multiple violations, or a clear and substantial threat to the safety of residents based on prior documented behavior of the specific assistance or service animal, the person granted the accommodation may be required to remove the assistance animal from the Condominium Property.
