Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you under a written fixed term lease or are you month to month?
Are you saying that the landlord has just posted a sign saying that tenants have to take their dogs to a certain area to urinate?
Ok, if you signed the lease with the new pet policy in it, then legally you are bound by that contract and that new policy.
With that said, I think it would be hard for the landlord to monitor what dog pees where and to enforce the policy, but it would be legal for the landlord to have a designated area for dogs to do their business..
So although it is a pain, you may have to carry your dog if possible to the designated area if you think that the landlord is actually going to try to enforce the policy.
