Customer Question

I'm in Florida and I signed a lease for a home for a year. I was told verbally that I could have two dogs. The manager that showed the property no says she doesn't remember saying that. I sent in my lease with both dogs names. They called back saying I could only have one dog. I told them I'd have to think about it. So I found another place.
JA: OK. The Real Estate Lawyer will need to help you with this.
Customer: I called today to say I found another place and I'd like my money back and they said I couldn't get out of the lease. I can send in writing that I want out and they will keep all monies paid until they find another renter
JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.
Customer: They also said that they spoke to the owner and she reluctantly agreed to take a second dog. But I'
ve already given my word to another landlord
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?

Does the lease say that you can only have one dog?
