The New York City Apartment Management Checklist Presents…What You Need to Know About PET LAW
DID YOU KNOW that owners of NYC buildings with 3 or more apartments are subject to the NYC “Pet Law,” and that ANY building owner may be subject to a claim based on an animal attack at its building? It’s True.
3 More Important Things to Know About Pet Law:
1. If a tenant has kept a pet openly for at least 3 months without objection by an owner of a building containing 3 or more apartments, a “no pet clause” in the tenant’s lease is deemed WAIVED.
2. The Pet Law MAY NOT APPLY if a tenant can prove that he or she was entitled to keep a dog or other animal for therapeutic reasons.
3. An owner who knows of a pet’s vicious tendencies and does nothing to remove the pet may be sued for NEGLIGENCE.
