i lived but other residents are getting the same renewal lease that have been here 6 and 10 years here 18 months can we fight this. i thought if rules change it should be grandfathered in for the people who already paid the $300.00 non- refundable

Hi, I'm sorry, but I am not understanding what your issue is here. What does this mean? i lived but other residents are getting the same renewal lease What does a lease renewal have to do with your pet deposit? Are you saying that the lease renewal includes a new pet deposit, or a change in the way the pet deposit works? What is it specifically you think should be grandfathered in?Doug
