Getting shot by a tenant just because she has a dog is ridiculously disproportionate. Breach of the rental agreement (12) is one of the discretionary grounds for a section 8 notification, so if your tenants dispute this, you must convince a judge that a breach of this provision of the lease is so monstrous that it justifies throwing your tenants on the street. It would be difficult in the best moments. If you try to do so in this case where this supposedly vital deal breaker of a lifetime does not even appear in the lease you have signed, you will be ridiculed outside for a long time. Termination for non-payment of rent If you have breached the agreement only by being in arrears in rent, the landlord/agent may give you a termination for non-payment. You must pay at least 14 days` rent before you can give yourself this message.
