I did not see anything pertaining to weight limits in leases. All of the court cases and the law and the bar assoc. pamphlet refer to cases when there is a no-pet clause in the lease.
This clause allows me to have a dog but only under a certain weight limit. My dog breaks this weight limit. But, as I stated earlier the super and doorman have seen the dog everyday since I moved in. I'm not trying to hide her.
Would I have any rights as a tenant??
: So you read the Pet Law: did you see if there are similar questions earlier and see if
: there is a similar case in the decisions? Did you read the bar association pamphlet?
: If you're asking would this weight limit somehow override the 90 day rule in the law:
: probably not. Call that bar assoc.
: : The doorman and super have both seen the dog. I've read the info on the Pet Law. Does this apply to weight limits as well???
: : : : I live in a rental building in NYC (not controlled or stabilized). My lease says that I can have a dog but it has to be under 50 lbs. I moved in with my dog who is over that limit. I've been there for 4 months. The landlord has told me that I am in violation of my lease and I must get rid of my dog.
: : : : What rights do I have?
: : : Read about NYC Pet Law, TenantNet Home.
: : : Search for 'dog' 'pet' on this board, on homepage, on Housing Court Decisions.
: : : Still have a question? give some more details, like dates, building staff, etc.
