Once again, read the lease. If the lease says "no pets" but you think the landlord is OK with pets, have him delete that line from the lease. Don't assume it somehow does't apply to you.
Some dogs and cats do a lot of damage to apartments. But worse are some irresponsible pet owners. For example, a LL friend of mine had tenants skip out without paying rent, leaving their 3 dogs starving in the apartment for days before he found them. (He called the ASPCA and police and eventually won a judgement from the tenants, but what a hassle. He no longer accepts pets).
In my opinion people who plot to violate a lease provision they quite knowingly signed and agreed are probably irresponsible in other ways to, as the tenants who abandoned their dogs were.
No pets means no pets.
: I suppose it takes one to know one. Boy are you rude! You know most buildings in NYC have leases that say "no pets", and many of these allow pets anyway. I'm in such a building right now. The lease says "no pets" and there must be around 10 dogs here. Even the ad said "dogs ok". So the "no pets" clause doesn't mean a hell of a lot.
