Legal Question

Asked on: 6/20/13, 10:22 am

I have a 1 yr lease with Richman Proprty Mgt for a 2 br apt. I notified them ahead of time that I have pets, written on my initial application. When I signed the lease, they told me not to worry about it. Since then, 8 mos later and into the lease, they have come back and said I owe them $1000.00 for my pets. They said I can pay it out. The girl that initially told me not to worry about it has since found other employment.

1.) Am I obligated to pay at this point $1000.00?

2.) What are the consequences if I choose not to pay and I plan on moving anyway?

Read your lease. It controls on pet damage deposits.

Your written lease controls. The oral representations don't amount to an agreement. Have your lease reviewed.
