Hi everyone! Some of you may know that I have 2 puppies - a chihuahua and a puggle. Today I received a call from my landlady (she's in Colorado and I'm in New York) that she has found out that I have puppies and wants them to be "returned" or removed from the premises or I will have to move out. I used to have a lease from 2004 to 2005 but after that one year, we did not renew it and I have been staying on a month to month basis. I can't remember if there was a no-pets clause in the initial lease but I did have a mouse that she knew about and didn't mind. Does anyone know what my rights are? I just looked up New York State tenant rights and it states that in New York city, the no-pets clause can be waived after three months if you've kept your pets "openly and notoriously." However, I'm not in New York city at all and I don't know if it applies to me. Also, since I don't have a lease, does it mean that there are no terms so I should be able to stay with my pupppies? Or does it mean that my landlord and I go by the last lease that was signed? (so if there was a no pets clause there I am evicted for sure.) Thanks for all your help!!!
