My question involves an eviction in the state of: Texas. My landlord has not evicted me but says it's one of the options he is considering and he will get back to me later this week with his decision. He has a family business and we dealt with his daughter on the lease. We have 3 dogs. She told us it would be $250 deposit for each dog. We said we couldn't afford that and she asked how big they were. We told her they all were under 12 lbs. She said she'd only ask for a deposit for one. But on the lease she wrote only one on premises. The landlord knows we have 3 dogs. He's known it for over 8 months when he came over many times to make repairs. He even joked about how noisy they were. Now it is the end of our first year and he is suddenly saying we are violating the lease because the lease says only one dog. Is the fact that he's never brought up the dogs until now enough evidence that he was aware of the verbal agreement? I believe the real reason for this is we didn't sign a standard 1 year lease. We signed a 3 year lease with the understanding that if we did so we would not receive a rent increase in that time. In the past year the house has had several things that needed repairs, new air conditioner, washer dryer repair and a hot water heater that has worn out. All very costly. I believe that he is having remorse for the 3 year lease considering the repair costs. Mainly because he brought these issues up after talking about the dogs.
