tenant trying to sneak in a dog
How should I go about handling this? The tenant has lived there for over a year, and just renewed the lease even though the lease clearly stated that no pets were allowed. Its a townhouse, and no backyard per se although there's plenty of grass in the common areas. This is one of the reasons why this tenant was selected over another possible tenant because that other possible tenant wanted to bring in a rather large dog.
I was just over there last week, getting something fixed when I noticed a schedle that had information about pet training a dog. And, then I noticed cans of food for a dog. But, there was no dog inside so I'm assuming the tenant removed the dog, knowing that I would be there that day, or hasn't yet brought in the dog.
Do I confront the tenant, and remind him about the lease about no pets allowed? But, I don't know if that would resolve the matter because I doubt somebody would just abandon their pet like that.
