    @Erin, regarding the produce, it depends on which store you frequent. Some have a very nice refrigerated section for produce and it lasts as long as produce from any other supermarket. Belmont & Kimball is top notch. I once had an absolutely awful experience at one of the stores and emailed corporate to let them know since it was SO out of what I have grown to expect (spoiled produce in the bins, boxes all over the floor). I got a call from a regional manager who asked the date, the time of day, etc. She assured me she would look in to it immediately and even offered me a gift certificate (totally unnecessary).

Landlord... Make Up Your Mind! Pets or No Pets

Question for anyone in the know: I have a lease within a 6 unit dwelling that says NO PETS. So far, I have dealt with one neighbor on section 8 with a pitbull (situation remedied with no help from the landlord by Section 8, which has rules), and am now dealing with a neighbor with a yapper of a dog that gets separation anxiety while I am home trying to sleep during the day.

Question for anyone in the know: I have a lease within a 6 unit dwelling that says NO PETS. So far, I have dealt with one neighbor on section 8 with a pitbull (situation remedied with no help from the landlord by Section 8, which has rules), and am now dealing with a neighbor with a yapper of a dog that gets separation anxiety while I am home trying to sleep during the day.

I have told the landlord about the problem, and asked upfront if the building allows pets or not since my lease specifies NO PETS. He said no and proceeds to tell me why (damage to property and disturbance of neighbors), and says he will fix it. A week later, after I am disturbed by the lil yapper for THREE STRAIGHT HOURS (i kid you not), I blast him in text (I like to have a record of our little chats) asking him what he is doing about it. He says he spoke with the tenant who says she will keep the dog under control (while she is at work, how is this even possible??) At this point, I let him have it as politely as I could, promising to seek remedy if he lied in my lease and collects my money while not allowing me to live a peaceful tenancy in his building.

No responses to my ongoing notes whenever the yapper starts his usual hour long barking at random times during the day while I am trying to sleep.

I don't hate animals, but i don't have pets because I know my life won't allow me to have a pet without the fallout of noise and expenses attached to the choice. I signed on for an apartment without pets.

Besides restarting the apartment hunting process, what can I do regarding my landlord refusing to uphold this lease specification, thereby ruining my peace of mind at home.

    Concerned... Did you not read my whole entry??? "I don't hate animals, but i don't have pets because I know my life won't allow me to have a pet without the fallout of noise and expenses attached to the choice. I signed on for an apartment without pets. " The fact is: I have a disdain for discourteous pet owners. If I step in your dog's pudding, it's probably your fault. The dog, by nature, is doing what dogs do. If your dog keeps barking while I am trying to sleep, once you have been talked to about it, then it's you as the owner's responsibility to fix the problem by either tending to the poor puppy or getting someone else who CAN do that.

  • Even if the landlord provides no-pet policy, renter could have convinced landlord to allow furry friend in rental.
    I’m sorry about your situation. In your case, pet owner is not very responsible.
    Contact the real estate lawyer. I’m sure they will suggest a good solution.
