Read your lease. If your lease doesn't prohibit pets, you can keep your dog and get a new dog.
If your lease prohibits pets, and it's been known to the landlord all these years, you can keep your dog, but you probably won't be allowed to get a replacement dog if the original dog dies.
The condo board should have sought the advice of its attorneys before trying to make changes when renewal leases were offered to the rent stabilzed tenants in the building.
Sign all the documents that you're required to sign to renew your lease, except the new no-pet rider. It would probably be wise to copy the signed documents before you return them, and send them back by certified mail, return receipt requested.
: As you can tell I applaud the management for this action.......
: There are lots of bad dog owners and they probably had it with the dog poop, on the sidewalk, instaed of the curb, the barking, the peeing on the bushes, and all sorts of things that an Irresponsible dog owner dosn't care about .
: So you have to pay the price for this..and I am glad....
: And even if you did have a dog if it dies and you got another one, the landlord could force you to get rid of the dog or evict you....so that is nothing new.
: So what is your problem? There are lots of other pets that need a loving home....or are going to be killed at the humane shelters....
: You have been there 25 years......have you ever had a dog? and whats the big deal now? Geez always looking to blame the landlord.
