A: This would largely depend on what is stated in your lease. It is possible that your lease could contain "nuisance" provisions, which would prohibit things like letting pets out, playing loud music, disturbing neighbors, etc. If so then it is possible your landlord could try to evict on those grounds. However, generally these types of situations are best dealt with through open communication. I would recommend sitting down with the landlord, having a detailed conversation about the issues and finding out what can be done - by both parties - to resolve them.
