Her email:

The lease does say no dogs but there are other dogs in the building. I would
like to stay until my lease is up - December. Should I let him try to evict
me? My friends say it takes a long time to evict and by time it goes to
court, my lease will be up.
Well you have your answer... no dogs!

So the question is How much money do you have? That will determine your next move.......

One the LL could try and evict you and by you violating the lease you could
lose your security deposit AND be liable for all his attorney fees and costs...

Also are you rent stabilized? have you given the LL notice you intend to move in

If so then offer to the LL....let him keep your security deposit in case there is any
damages from the dog, and you will pay december's rent exchange for not
starting any eviction proceedings against you....yeah you'll lose some money but
you will be safe untill your lease ends....

Hey he's trying to co-operate with you by offering you another apartment!

Sorry that disabled excuse wont wash either unless you're blind!

So how much money do you have? that is still the question.


: Last week I rescued a very small dog. I have seen many other dogs in my NY apt building. The super informed the owner and the owner called and said I can not have a dog. He said he is trying to make the building dog free and is not allowing new pets but the existing pets can stay. My lease is up in December. Can I stay until December? The landlord said I could move to one of his other buildings that allows pets, but the rent is $300 more. I would like to stay until my lease is up. I'm also considered disabled although I can still work, if that makes a difference. Does anyone know what my rights are?Thanks
