My husband and I are looking to move out of our current apartment ASAP. Unfortunately the complex is in foreclosure. We have a sweet and loving 16 month old female pitbull named Delilah whom is up to date on all of her vaccinations and county tag. We have no issues with leaving a pet deposit. Our pup is well trained and extremely friendly with children and other dogs. We are also willing to have our own renters insurance policy. We are looking to rent a 2-3 bedroom 1.5-2 bathroom no more then $800.00 a month.

If anyone has any information of rentals willing to accept our pitbull along with us please feel free to contact me. Any information will be greatly appreciated!!

If you are going to reply to this thread with nasty remarks regarding the breed of my dog please refrain from doing so. You will be reported. I will not tolerate cruelty.

please do not take this as a nasty remark buy information past on, Most home owners insurance co.'s will not write polices for homes if certain dogs are reported to be living in the house. Pit Bulls are one of them. So if you get turned down for a rental you might now know why.

Well, then you already know that finding a decent rental in Lee County with a pit is going to be a problem.

Most complexes wont' take them and neither will many property management companies. I suggest you seek out private landlord's who won't have a breed ban on their lease...they are all over Craig's List.

You've asked this question before, about your "Delilah." Your current rental didn't work out?

I'm an insurance agent. There are not 80 breeds on the restriction lists of any company that I know of.

yes i did ask this question last year before we moved here with delilah and got bombarded with comments by rude people. our current rental worked out fine. our landlord loves our dog but unfortunately the property is in foreclosure so we don't really want to stick around and wait for the bank to pay us to leave and then be stuck searching for rentals and have no where to go because of the breed restrictions.

Gotcha. There is a new law that they can't force you out due to a foreclosure if you are in a rental. This happened to my ex-MIL a few years back, on Cape Coral. They guy was taking her rent but was also not paying the mortgage.

It sounds like your landlord is nice, though.

Anyway, the 2009 law says you can stay until your lease ends. If you are month-to-month then you get 90 days.

Of course, eventually that will end but it might be able to give you some time. You won't have to leave until they (the bank if they buy or back or the new owners) give you an eviction notice. That could take quite sometime. Lee County is backed up processing foreclosures. Also, if an investor buys the house, they may want you to stay!

I would sit tight for awhile. In the meantime, start calling different apartment complexes. I live in a beautiful one up here in Knoxville, Tenn. It is in the best area in the city, gorgeous homes and mansions around. Yet, the complex has a LOT of pitbulls.

thank you for the information. our lease is up next month lol

the landlord was nice until now. we haven't had an AC since december he kept delaying fixing it so we haven't paid rent since then. i have all the money orders made but i wasn't going to pay him until he fixed the AC and then in mid january we got the foreclosure notice from the county clerk. then the landlord proceeded to post fake eviction notices on the tenants doors. one tenant actually moved out but i've been dealing with the landlords wife because they just got divorced and the property among-st many other properties were awarded to her n the decree. her lawyer has been trying to work something out with the bank so she can take over the mortgage payments. supposedly her AC company is coming here friday to fix our unit finally so we'll see how it goes from there i guess
