Basking Ridge, NJ asked in Animal / Dog Law and Landlord - Tenant for New Jersey

Q: Re 2A:42-104. I live in Lounsberry Meadow, a 52 apt. bldg for seniors and a few younger disabled folk. Is this statute…

Enforceable? I’ve lived here for 32 years and have always had a cat or two, but they changed their policy to no pets and said that I was grandfathered in. My cat just passed away, and I asked the office to expect a call from a cat rescue, as they wanted to know that I could have a cat. I was told that the clause was only until my last cat died! I was never told that before! And gave me paperwork for me and my doctor to request reasonable access for an emotional support animal. Kindly advise me what my rights are. Thank you!
