Do you still have the ad or remember what paper and date it was placed? I would find it -- pronto -- and send it to management with a note that said their ad was misleading. Try for a compromise -- ask if there is any way you can keep the pet -- like a pet deposit, in case of wear and tear that's pet-related, and put it in writing, with both you and LL signing off on it.
Get those doctor's notes too with their phone numbers so you can better plead your case. Good luck!
: I suppose it takes one to know one. Boy are you rude! You know most buildings in NYC have leases that say "no pets", and many of these allow pets anyway. I'm in such a building right now. The lease says "no pets" and there must be around 10 dogs here. Even the ad said "dogs ok". So the "no pets" clause doesn't mean a hell of a lot.
: : You signed a specific agreement in which you warranted you would have no pets in the apartment. Then you went and got a pet anyways. Why did you renege on your agreement ? If you wanted a pet why did you sign it in the first place ?
: : You must know that your options are very, very few. Beware that if this goes to court a judge will base his decision on FACT (the agreement your signed) not your "emotions" at the time you got a pet. Choosing to bring in others on your deceit, even if they agree, will not win you friends with the judge.
: : The simple fact is that pets create serious wear and tear on an apartment, and often annoy other residents as well (who may have their own legitimate reasons for NOT wanting to live near animals, like alergies, phobia, etc). That is why your landlord offered you the apartment on the condition that you agreed to "NO PETS".
: : You basically want advice on how to weasel out of your agreement and screw over the landlord and other occupants of your building. Fight this in court and you will spend a lot more than your rent on legal fees and attorneys ... and still get evicted anyways. Which would serve you just right.
: : Sorry, I have little sympathy for weasels.
