Oviedo, FL asked in Animal / Dog Law and Landlord - Tenant for Florida

Q: can a rv park decide to no longer allow your dog on their property? Even if you are a long term tenant...

My dog accidentally bit a mans foot going for a golf cart tire.

We have never had any previous issues. This was truely a one time accident where my 10 year old let him go by mistake.

Our lease was one printed sheet that said we agreed to pay $xxx per month for xxx months.

We also signed a form for our card to be automatically charged that amount.

There was no formal written lease agreement.

We did background checks to be approved and provided our pets shots records.

This is the extent of the pet policy

“Pets are allowed. A non-refundable $50 pet fee and a $150 pet security deposit (refundable at check out if there are no damages) is required.”

Also, they said corporate made the decision to not allow my dog but corporate has no written pet policy either and maintains that each park they own makes their own policy.
