Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
Can I please ask you to give me some more detailed information regarding this matter so as to allow me to work with you and help resolve your enquiry. Had both you and the landlord signed the agreement? or had only you signed it before the landlord made the changes.
Have you moved in?
What was the change to the contract?
So the issues is the fact you would need to obtain landlords permission for the pet?
What did the contract say before?
Sorry but I cannot see what the issue really is here. The old clause does not allow you to have any pet of any kind without the landlords permission. The wording here ANY PET would include your sister if visiting.
The new clause is basically the same but if anything actually makes it clearer, but also allows service dogs without the need to ask the landlord. So as far as the change is concerned, there really is no difference.
However, as both parties have signed the old agreement that is legally binding on all concerned. That does however, still mean your sisters dog is not allowed in without permission.
My advice would be to sign, as the change in wording actually makes no difference to your sister visiting with a dog.
They cannot make you sign, but as it makes no difference at all, what is the problem in signing. It changes nothing between the to clauses.
You would have to ask them why. I cannot speak for them, I can only advice, which I have done.
Again, the wording changes nothing so no reason why you should not just sign the new wording.
There really is nothing difficult with that.
Sorry, I don't see what this has to do with the word change in the contract?
