With that letter I'm sure it will be fine. Having come from Florida (the land of HOA) birds rarely were even considered problems and always allowed even if it didn't say so in the HOA regulations. My sons both work in HOAs and have said the same. Good luck!

Re: Need help ASAP with letter to HOA!

To me, the concern for them would be screeching, and who can blame them. Would it be possible to get a reference from a prior residence?

We have one from our current landlord who is able to say living in a residential house with them with uninsulated floors he has never been a bother/is not loud. We've lived here several years. Our apartment before this is in a different state and has new ownership since we left. The first apartments we lived in was about 6 years ago are also under new management, as the manager when we were there passed away shortly before we moved out.

Re: Need help ASAP with letter to HOA!

April, I think your letter is well thought out, well worded and an excellent glimpse of family life with a parrot. The photos are great, I think all their questions about Kiwi are clearly answered.

Best of luck to you, Joe and Kiwi. I hope this condo is your next home.

No new additions for at least a few years until we move out of this condo I'm going to just stick everything I had managed to buy into storage.

Re: Need help ASAP with letter to HOA!

If possible, you might also consider attaching a brief letter of recommendation from your current landlords. The endorsement from them would probably carry a bit more weight with a future landlord/HOA board in need of reassurance about allowing Kiwi in.

Where in Oregon do you live? I've rented in several parts of Portland, and never had any issues getting into a place with my bird. My reptiles, on the other hand...just mention lizards or snakes, and watch the door shut in your face. My husband and I now have our own home, and we actually had an insurance company (American Family) refuse to offer us insurance due to the fact that we have reptiles. Yes, because so many people are mauled and killed every year by Bearded Dragons, you just can't take that chance. Idiots.

We live in the Portland area. We had a lot of trouble getting in moving up here initially. One place even said they were super excited to have us as renters (credit history and renters history), all we had to do was get rid of our bird and we were in As if he was on par with an unwanted couch or something we would just easily get rid of for the privilege to rent with them We did get a letter from our landlords, a very nice one about how there is no insulation between the floors and he is still very quiet, never hear him at night, comes out with us and is fun to see etc...

BTW- you really have to watch out for those geckos and bearded dragons and newts and frogs! Vicious, vicious animals (noisy and messy too!)

Thanks!

This I should change "more common pets" to dogs/cats then? I did say he only weighed under a pound.

[IMG]Look GREAT to me. What about a pic of his Cage so they can see how nice it is and how clean you keep it.[/IMG]

We are buying actually, not renting. I'm not sure if his setup is as relevant but it may not be a bad idea to include it anyways!
Yeah, a photograph of him in his cage would be a good idea, because most non-parrot folks don't even GET that they ever come out of their cages... Okay maybe once in awhile... like when you have to clean it or something... but REALLY... EVERYDAY? FOR HOURS AT A TIME?!
