A: I’m not sure what type of notice you received. If you are doing something in violation of your lease, the normal process is to serve you with a Notice to Cure. That gives you a short time to correct the offending condition. A Notice to Terminate your lease would be inappropriate if this is the first time a dog was on the premises.

A: If you are not in a rent regulated apartment or have the protection of a lease, the landlord does not need a reason for seeking to recover an apartment.
