    We got some complaints that our porch was smelling due to our new dog going to the bathroom out there. We always clean up after her immediately unless it’s at night when we’re asleep, then we clean it up as soon as we wake up.

    Some smell still lingered so they suggested puppy pads and we’ve been doing that along with washing the porch.

    They sent a letter stating that we couldn’t wash the porch and that they were doing an inspection. After the inspection, they gave us a detergent to wash the porch and said they’d be back in 2 weeks to follow up.

    It’s been more than a month now and they haven’t returned. They’re now denying us a second dog due to the previous complaints and will allow us to get one depending on how the follow up goes.

    It doesn’t smell at all anymore so we’re just waiting on them to follow up with another inspection.

    My question is how long can they put off this inspection? It almost seems like they’re putting it off on purpose to wait for us to slip up or something even though we’ve been on top of it and working with them since the beginning.

    Who is "they"?
    If you are referring to the landlord, then yes, "they" can prevent you from having another dog.

    Who is "they"?
    What authority to "they" have to limit your dog ownership?
    Are you renting?
    A house?
    An apartment?
    Have a written lease? When does it expire? Or on month to month?
    Or do you own and live in an HOA?

    Details count.

    Does your lease agreement address pets? If so, make sure you follow the rules outlined in your lease.
    As for the follow up, you have no control over that other than to call and ask nicely.
    What will happen if they continue to delay or never come and you get another dog anyway? Read your lease to find out.
