Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
My one year lease was up in March of this year and I was not presented with a new one.
The lease states that the maximum number of pets allowed is two.I repeatedly told the landlord (wife) for 4 months prior to moving in how many cats I had. All she kept telling me was "Don't worry about it, we love animals."
I am current on my rent. I am an excellent tenant and they have told me how "wonderful it is to have me here" I take care of their dog who lives with me, their cat, their ducks and I feed their fish.I also maintain the water softner in the basement and keep my apartment immaculate.
