BROOKLYN - Residents of Trump Village in Brighton Beach are taking property owners to court after receiving eviction notices for their pets.
Under Trump Village laws, pets are not allowed and the board is now trying to have all furry friends removed. Last October, tenants began receiving $100 monthly citations, but say they refuse to get rid of their animals.
Ten of the pet owners have obtained a lawyer to fight the evictions in court. According to their attorney, Maddy Tarnofsky, the landlord has missed the opportunity to take action. She says that once property owners have knowledge of the pet, they only have three months to seek removal.
Tenants say that if a deal can't be reached, they will take their pets and move out.
