Lease says we can have pets; Hoa says no; being evicted.
I am being evicted by my landlord for having pets. My lease and renewal lease both have clauses about my animals, listing them and the deposits, and even saying that the landlord can come in at anytime to make sure the pets are not ruining the place.... they let me know about that once, so if they have been in other times, I do not know about it.
I con****ed and hired lawyers (two because I know they tend to all disagree) who have not made contact with him yet, but who are advising me. His notice is invalid and would get thrown out in court according to both of them.
The notice said I have three days to get out but did not give me a chance to fix the issues (that is the invalid part). I have since fixed the issues anyways, at the advice of my lawyers (he says my rent check bounced- don't believe it because I have overdraft protection.... and put my dogs elsewhere) so my lease is now good.
Here is my question.... do I stay and let him know his eviction notice is no good? I would face a court battle and mostly it would just give me more time to find a place to live..... or do I move out this weekend as planned and counter sue because I not only fixed the issues, but his eviction notice was not valid........... either way I go to court......
I think if I were to do the second one, it would make me look best in the eyes of the courts.... but the first one would be an in your face, I am right kind of thing...... ugh.
