May a landlord refuse to rent to a tenant who has pets?
Yes, however, if pets are allowed in the lease, or if the lease does not address this issue, then pets are permitted in the rental unit. The lessee should also consult the by-laws of the building they are renting as they may prohibit pets. The by-laws are considered to form part of the lease and the lessor is bound to give the lessee, before entering into a lease, a copy of the by-laws.
If a no petsclause is written into a lease or a by-law and the landlord discovers that the tenant has a pet, is this grounds for the landlord to evict the tenant?
Yes, but only if the landlord can prove that this action by the lessee has resulted in a serious injury.
The landlord may also apply to have the lessee cease the offensive activity; i.e. for a court order to instruct the lessee to get rid of the pet.
您能帮助解答一下什么是 serious injury, 如果房东想以宠物为由evict the tenant？我想在这一点上，各省的解释应该是一样的。谢谢.
