Whoa, OK I never said ignore legal advice, all I'm saying is that I've been under half a dozen different leases and there was plenty of stuff not allowed that was not explicitly listed on every lease agreement but there were still rules we had to abide by. And yes, I've studied leases *with* an attorney and his answer was always "it depends". There is no cut-and-dry law when it comes to contracts and lease agreements. We looked at several different lease agreements that were in dispute over something or other and it always took a lot of sorting out, it's not like there was one source of "lease law" to refer to for a black and white answer. But either way it takes time for both sides. If the OP already has a new place, just wait it out and move. Why fight to live somewhere where there is now a bad relationship with management (even if they are wrong)?

The landlord doesn't know that the OP is leaving over getting rid of the dog...but I'm guessing the landlord will know shortly or just found out Lots of landlords use those notices for everything and really lots of them mean nothing..if one knows the law

jocoyn I absolutely believe she should find a new place but she needs to do what she needs to do to cut her losses.

selzer It is possible that the other people with dogs outside of their limits have also been served, and it is possible that they are being hard-nosed about it, because everyone is being given the same treatment. I would move as soon as you can -- the first? I would definitely be versed on the law and have several plans in place depending on how it plays out. The big thing is that I would not want to give these yayhoos another nickel than what I absolutely have to.

Also after you clean the place out, videotape the whole thing, or have it audited somehow to ensure you get your deposit back.

I think it is pretty poopie that they understand why you got the dog, they understood that you were getting a dog, before you got the dog, they let you bring the dog in and get attached to the dog, and now they are being idiots about it.

It makes you just want to trip on their sidewalk doesn't it?

Jag Actually, I'm very sure that I could get my brother to look at this, make a phone call, have a letter written... that kind of thing, for nothing if need be. This is why I even bothered to call him. Better to know the law right off. I didn't ask him about breaking the lease. Until the lease is up, though, you can stay put with no risk of legal proceedings. I don't ask my brother for legal advice often because I don't want to be rude. However, my family calls me for medical advice.. and I've given him info. on medical cases he's had for nothing...so we've had a 'one hand washes the other' relationship about our professions. I hope this free legal advice is used.

jocoyn I agree with talking with a lawyer because if you are breaking a lease you COULD be liable for loosing your deposit and even paying out rent until the end of the lease period....An initial consult with a lawyer is usually very affordable, often free, and even a letter does not cost that much (compared to loosing deposits, paying out a lease term etc.)

I'm not sure I agree with the lease thing. I don't think a lease has to explicitly list all of the things that *aren't* allowed in order for it to be so. The web site looks like it has a weight restriction that would rule out GSDs or any other commonly banned breeds.

NOTHING. So until your lease is up you have not a thing to worry about. Until you sign a new lease with the changes, they cannot touch you. PLEASE tell this to the manager. Tell her you have a lawyer. My brother would call her if I asked him to and she'd be totally crapping her pants. I know I'm just a message on the internet, but if you want me to, I'll post the page of my brother's assignment to the biggest courts in Michigan. I almost forgot, he said to print the webpage for your apartment complex. Their site page that only says "pets welcome". Also, he said if they have nothing in writing about a pet policy (dated before now) then they have not a leg to stand on. Not that they do anyway, but it's another positive in your favor. You can actually sue her for harassment if she continues this. She CANNOT legally evict you. Period.
How awesome is this LOL!!! You go Jag!!!

holland I agree with that...the bottom line is that the dog isn't welcome there...think everyone would be happier if you found a place where the dog is welcome.
