Courtney Lynn, Renter in Arlington, TX

Termination of lease?

Asked by Courtney Lynn, Arlington, TX Tue Dec 4, 2012

We have a great rental history of paying on time for the last 4 years. Our property manager is claiming that our dogs have damaged property, on which we had put down a hefty deposit when we transferred within the complex, with no problems. Like I said, we have a great history of timely payment but she refuses to allow us to renew because our dogs tore up some blinds (cheap blinds that they can replace at moment's notice) and left a couple stains on the carpet that I've made the effort to clean. I'm not looking for our deposit back, but I don't want this to make it difficult for us to find another place to rent. We don't mind a deposit and we just hope the new landlord will give us a chance. We're willing to pay a deposit.

Good Evening Courtney
I understand your situation and your concerns. Really all you can do is review your lease and pet agreement and then speak with your land lord to see what she intends to say. I wish you the best of luck with what is a difficult situation.

I would contact your current landlord tacfully explain your concerns and apologize for any problems. It is important if your next landlord calls they leave good feedback. If you feel as though it is unfair you are losing your whole deposit that is another thing. Feel free to contact me directly so I can better assist you. I look forward to speaking with you shortly

I would never buy or rent a property when the previous owners had dogs. Always damage.
