Halloween is right around the corner. Get the pumpkins out, turn on those bright orange lights and bring on the cobwebs, spiders and spooky decor! Oh, did you think you needed a front porch to celebrate one of the most festive holidays of the year? Think again! Now when it comes to condos, there are certain rules and bylaws that an owner must respect and abide by but that doesn’t mean NO to Halloween fun! According to an article by, they stated that in regards to decorating the inside of your condo, go nuts! It’s your home so feel free to get creative. The outside of your condo, on the other hand, may have some restrictions. Start by reading your condo board’s bylaws before putting anything up on your front door or balcony. The condo rules and bylaws can be found in the declaration, which you receive when you purchase your condo. Alternatively, have your agent ask the property management company for specifics or check with the selling agent to see if they have a copy of the rules and bylaws for you to read over before you make a commitment. So be sure to check in with your condo board before hanging that cut off arm or leg on your front door!
