I recently bought a coop in Jackson heights, Queens. Prior to buying the coop we received 4 separate copies of the "house rules". None of these documents had any rule against having a pet. During our approval meeting with the board, they told us that pets are fine except for dogs. After the sale, I reviewed the proprietary lease and there is nothing in that document that mentions pets. There is nothing in it that says we can't have a dog. We still bought the coop and a couple months later we wanted to bring in a dog. We finally did and now a week later, the board has served us with a "20-day notice of termination". They are saying we are in default of our lease and that if we don't get rid of the dog by the end of the month they will start proceedings to take the apartment from us. Can they do this even though the rule was never written down in the house rules or in our proprietary lease? If anyone knows, please post a message ASAP. We are also going to try to find a lawyer to help us in this matter.
