Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Florida

I applied to rent a house and on the application I put my dog's real breed. The management company told the owner my dog's breed was something else and put that on the lease. I knew that and signed the lease and gave them a deposit because the management company said it wasn't an issue. Is the lease valid? Can I get my deposit back?

Huh? You signed a lease you knew had false information on it and you want to use that discrepancy to void the agreement? I think you need to discuss the matter with an attorney and have the actual lease agtreement with you so it can be reviewed. Has the lease started? have you taken possession? Those are critical issues. You want to act before possession if you hope to have any opportunity to cancel the lease.
