We have been living in a 3 bedroom place for one month now and have been issued with a notice of pending eviction because the pet fee has been paid. We don't have any pets, it was mentioned that one of the people moving in did have a small dog and she was asked to pay it when the pets arrive (as of yet they have not, and this was mentioned 6 days ago when I paid the rent)

Since the options given by the property manager were pay the Pet fee or discuss quitting the lease I am thinking we might quit the lease. A week after we moved in Construction started next door of a 5 story apartment complex. Before we moved in we asked what was going in there and when and they said they did not know. So my question is, Does the apartment leasing manager have any obligation to let us know when construction was schedule to start? We are woken each morning at 6.15am by the machines out there and it continues until dark. I would like to know as a barginning aspect when I go talk to them tomorrow

You are being evicted because you did pay a pet fee yet do not have one? What am I missing here? I re-read twice and that's what you said.

I believe if you were making a purchase your question of whats being built next door must be answered either by your Realtor or the seller. But an apartment I doubt they have any obligations to tell you. But you can bet your life they knew when you asked and they said they dont know.

The construction schedule you mentioned is pretty typical for summer hours. Those guys like to start real early. Way earlier then I can get outta bed. I suspect they may start a little later once the weather cools down.

Chances are you talked to some moron in the leasing office who was probably high on drugs when you asked about the construction.

You cant trust people who work for apartment management companies. Most of them are horrible human beings.

Never pay a pet deposit until they bust you with a pet. Certainly do not pay it if you DONT have a pet.

The thing I need to know before going down and talking with them tomorrow is if they have a legal obligation to tells us about the construction, or for that matter that the apartment was remodeled after being flooded with sewage! The pet thing is a non issue since there is no pets, just miffed that they don't talk to each other in the office, one says it is ok, to wait until the pet there, the other see's it as unpaid rent

No. Disclosure on an apartment lease on off premises stuff is tough.

and I would in fact not be surprised that they did not know.

If you ain't got a pet they can't evict you for having one and not paying the fee. However they can certainly try to evict you and they will succeed unless you defend yourself. That means showing up at court and all that.

You will almost certainly win in the end but then you are on a lease with a hostile landlord...and you will almost certainly end up in court at the end of the lease when you try to get your security deposit back. .

If you don't like the place tell them to keep it and move. Note though that you again may have a difficult time getting your security deposit back.

Before you go any further tell them you want it in writing so you can discuss it with your lawyer. Can't hurt - may help.

Decide how bad it is...if you don't pay the pet deposit you get hasseled one way or the other.

You are off in to one of the life ain't fair episodes.
