New York City Administrative Code 27.2009.1(b) provides that if you have kept a pet open and notoriously for 3 months or more, the landlord cannot evict you for having a pet, per se. But the landlord could still pursue a nuisance eviction for excessive noise or if you don't clean up after your pet. There are similar laws in Westchester County (Chapter 694).

: nope. Till the dog has been there 6 months you can't use the "well he knew it was there" clause in the law
: bottom line. YOur lease says no. That's what the courts will see, so he can in fact F- you over for breaking the lease
: and that's fair...i mean honestly. Use a pooper scooper and keep the dog off the sidewalks!

: : Hi all. I have imported a dog for breeding and
: : showing. I was primarily going to leave the
: : dog with a relative, because my lease stats that
: : I cannot have a dog. However, when I purchased the dog,
: : The super of the building never mentioned that I cannot
: : have the dog, possibly because they own a dog and many other
: : tenants own a dog as well. I let my dog stay, and
: : on several ocassions, I have come across my super
: : who has never mentioned that I cannot have a dog.
: : In fact we have actually had casual conversations
: : about our dogs and have let them play together.

: : All of a sudden, because my dog has had an accident or two on the
: : sidewalk of our building, the super has asked me to not let that
: : happen, and has also threatened me by impling the rules
: : on my lease, that I cannot own a dog in the building.
: : As he has stated HE lets me SLIDE because other tenants own
: : dogs.

: : I am wondering if there are any laws that protect me since he has
: : not complained about the dog and in fact he is simply
: : discriminating against me, acting as if he can pick and choose
: : which dogs stay and which don't?

: : If anyone can offer any info please email me or post it here.
: : Any info is helpfull.

: : Thanks in advance.
