We have a possible tenant that has 2 dog/s that are mixed bulldog with pit bull? Our concern is if that dog/s bites or mauls someone can the Landlord be liable for damages or be personally sued?
It is possible. There are cases that address this issue. You can also Google Florida dog bite landlord liability and see what comes up for your own edification. I would personally not rent to a tenant with these dogs. Talk to your insurance company and attorney to protect yourself prior to doing anything.
