Have picures, proof of ownership, witnesses that visited your apartment? You'll probably have a better chance of winning if you have those things. Has your dog been barking? snapping at people? piddling or doodling in the hallways? if so then the dog may be considered an nuiscance by the court. If thats the case the 3 month pet law does not apply to you.

In either case if you lose the judge will give you time cure the situation without eviction. If you don't of course then you can be evicted. Whatever, you do NOT make hints,lies.promises to the landlord about removing the dog with the intention of renaging. This will waive the pet law for you too. Better not to discuss this with the landlord at all.


: Our landlord served us with a Notice to Cure regarding the harboring of our pet today. We've lived in this building for over eight months and take our dog for a walk every day. Every doorman in this building and our super is aware that we've had our pet since the day we moved in. Now they want us to remove our pet, pay their legal fees or face eviction. From what I can tell, the 90-day Pet Waive applies to us. What's my next, best step in regards to dealing with their Notice to Cure? Asking us to get rid of our little Truffle would be like asking us to put our baby in the kennel. Thanks for any help!!
