Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Did the lease forbid pets here, if it did its a lease violation.You can send a notice to correct or quit here about the lease violation and evict them if you have too.If the lease here permitted pets all you can do is take it up with the property manager.You would be able to sue them for damages since there is no pet deposit.These are your options depends if the lease allowed them or not as to your remedies and who they are against here under Florida law.
I suspect the lease allowed for them and you are going to have to sue the property manager if they will not resolve this.You can sue for any damages that occur due to unauthorized pets.But if the lease allowed pet then no recourse against tenant.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
