It looks like you violated the lease by having a pet, as much as i love pets, and have a few cats myself, You cant be saying one thing and doing another, and the landlord would be correct in trying to evict you since you violated the SIGNED lease, but chances are he just wont renew the lease.

As far as the discrimination, tenants are allowed to have vistors, but as soon as the visitor tries to become permenant.....such as having mail delivered to your apartment,or the landlord seeing furniture or clothes being moved in, the landlord would have a right to either demand the visitor move or have the vistor put on the lease. Race probably has nothing to do with this, the landlord has a right to know who is living on his propery.

If it sounds like I am landlord, youre wrong, thats what a lease is for to understand each parties responsibilites and consequences of violating them. There is no other way around it, maybe the landlord gave leases to the other tenants that didnt prohibit pets. And thats his right too.

: I have been living at my apartment for almost 2 years now, and my lease is up in August...
: When I first moved in, I agreed to my landlord that I wouldn't have any pets, and I didn't for a while. Then, I brought a beautiful cat into my home. The landlord called me at work sometime after 3 months and told me that my cat was seen in the window and that I was not allowed to have it. I told him I was catsitting, and that I would no longer have her in my home...and that's exactly what I did. Then out of the need to have an animal companion, I got another kitten. The reason for this is because there are definitely other tenants in this building with animals. I have seen plenty of cats in the window and a woman with a dog who walks in and out of the apartment obviously there are exceptions.
: I am also getting more aggravated at the fact that even before this situation, the landlord calls me at work from time to time and accuses me of having people come in all hours of the night (which I dont, but even if I did, it's none of his business) And that I have teenagers running around the building. He also tried to say that I had someone living with me (which is my boyfriend who stays with me often). I honestly feel that I am being discriminated because of my age and because of my boyfriend's race.
: The way he found the cat was that the super found my garbage with kitty litter and my mail. Wouldn't that be found wrong in a court of law - that he went through my mail and trash? Can I get evicted? Help!!!
