I'd suggest contacting an attorney who has some experience with pets. The LL's pet rules seem to change with the wind. He may have decided he can get more for your apartment and wants to make it less confortable for you. Better to consult with an attorney now before he comes up with any other reasons not to renew your lease. It would be terrible to give up your dog only to discover you had to move anyway.

: I have been living in the same apts for going on 2 years. I have a dog that landlord knows of, have paid the required deposits and I am now being told that when my lease is up for renewal (in march 2002) I will not be allowed to renew because the limits on dog weight has changed from 70lbs or less to 20lbs or less (my dog is 30 lbs). Is this legal? Is there any kind of "grandfather law" that could protect me? Also, new tenant moved in two months ago with a 70 lb dog...i just dont get it. Please if you know anything, help me. My dog is like part of our family and my daughter would be devastated.
