My sister rents out an apartment that is connected to her home. The new tenant and her husband rented the apt stating that it would only be them an two "well behaved" dogs. Since they moved in the dogs have destroyed the lattice under the deck, they have destroyed every set of blinds in the windows and have become tangled in my sisters landscaping out front of the house. (The tenants claim the dogs have separation anxiety) Last month she walked out on the deck to find cartons worth of cigarette butts and empty boxes just laying on the deck with no garbage can in sight.
The couple argues nonstop...they are heard almost daily screaming obscenities at each other, and the dogs are heard fighting, with the couple yelling for them to break it up.
After my sister asked them at the beginning of this month why the rent was late again the husband mentioned they were "expecting" in the next few months. well they are actually expecting the baby in March.
The apt is tiny....a small one bedroom with a small kitchen a living room and bathroom. My sister and her husband used to live in the apt with their medium sized dog and it was cramped for them.
The lease is a month to month lease...is there a way to evict them somehow or not renew the monthly lease? Its not that they do not WANT to allow kids there, but one- they never disclosed a pregnancy, it states in the lease only the named people may occupy unless the landlord gives written permission, the apt is very small for the current occupants and their pets, and last....the dogs and couple are already proven to be unruly with behavior. Advice?
