My neighbor is a renter and owns an aggressive pit bull mix dog. The dog has gone after my wife and I several times on our own property. We have tried to discuss with the neighbor but they are defensive and hostile. Since most insurance carriers will not insure homes with vicious dogs as pets I would like to notify them of the situation in the hope that the owner will be motivated to get rid of the animal. We have filed a complaint with the local animal control but it has not helped the situation. Also, we know the property owner, he lives in another town. We have also tried to discuss with him but can't get any satisfaction.
The short answer is, you can't - assuming they even carry renter's insurance, it is not a public record.
Should you have occasion to sue them, you will find out if they are insured.
The foregoing is for general information purposes and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
Sue them. They will tell the insurance people if they have any.
