Pets–New York City Tenants

Our firm takes a special interest in pet cases as many of us are avid pet-lovers!  We understand that a pet is a beloved family member.  We have successfully fought off many landlords trying to force tenants to get rid of their pets, or using pets as an excuse to try to evict tenants.

If you have had your pet openly in your apartment for over three months and the landlord has not complained, the landlord cannot later try to force you to get rid of your pet.  If the landlord is claiming that your pet is causing trouble to other tenants, the landlord will have to prove those allegations in court.

Please call us if your landlord is claiming your pet is a problem.
