You didn't say where your friend lives. In New York City, you could not be evicted in two months, unless the landlord did not serve the papers properly (sewer service), or the tenant ignored the papers.
Even if a lease allows pets, or doesn't forbid them, a tenant could be evicted if the pets create a nuisance -- excessive noise or odors coming from the apartment, urinating and/or defecating in the public areas of the building, attacking other residents of the building, etc.
: My friend signed a lease 10 months ago stating she could not have pets. Her neighbor is complaining that her dog is barking, and the landlord (who had previously given tacid verbal approval) is threatening to evict her. There is only two months left on this lease. Could he have her removed in this time frame?
