What's in writing is what counts. If the lease says you can have pets, the LL may not have discretion.

: Does anyone know the law regarding dogs vs pets. I'm having an awful time
: finding an apartment in the NYC area. I have a dog, 15lbs. I am currently
: subletting in a building that I was told took pets. Well, it turns out that
: "pets", according to this landlord, means cats NOT dogs. There are several
: cats in the building and the super even has a dog.But no one else is allowed
: to have a dog!Whats the law say???

: Also, any theories why landlords are so opposed to dogs in this city?
: Mine is that some very irresponsible people have ruined it for the rest
: of us and that the majority of landlords in this city are simply evil people.
: I've lived in several other cities and never encountered anything like this!
