Tenant has been issued violations for a vicious breed mix. Would like to non-renew vs go through eviction process, but given violation history, any risk for “retaliatory” claim here? I need no reason to non-renew, so they shouldn’t have a case, right?
If they stay post non-renewal, eviction probably would be easier. Not sure how the judge is going to be able to decide the breed of a dog given no paperwork has been provided (although that’s also a violation, so I presume we can go that route as well - no vaccination history, insurance, etc.).
