Why are managements and owners becoming so strict on pet policies? It seems to be getting harder and harder to find pet friendly options for clients.

Property managements have to follow the BODs policies and House Rules. BODs represent the community that lives in the building, and if its members consider that allowing pets in the building interferes with the quality of life of the majority of the members, the rules become stricter.

Yes, I recently heard a citizen complain it hard to find a place to smoke!
No sympathy received.
If you are to be a pet owner, make sure you become a qualified single family home owner also.
Don't look for others to blame for the choices you make.
Yes, I know, that doggie is family too.
Sorry, it is not family, it's a doggie.
Time for a reality check.

The landlords think already there are too many pets in their buildings. At some point they might start accepting pets again. Some landlords accept pets with extra deposit etc.

Management many times feel that pets will cause damage and more wear and tear to the apartment, and its not worth the extra hassle and potential problems.
