My landlord knew I had the dog, but said it had to stay in back yard. He comes and sees dog is a pitbull and says he doesn't think it is going to work. Also says lease says no pets after we verbally decided it was fine as long as she remains out back. Anyway, he wants me to pay the "deductible" on his insurance (1st he said $1500, now he says $1400), plus the extra monthly cost they charge him. I have my own renters insurance and my insurance provides personal liability if my dog EVER bite anyone. He knew this, yet still elected to inform his insurance and it's not even his dog. I have a clause that even releases him from liability since I am the owner and assume 100% responsibility. I'm fine with paying a pet deposit or pet rent, but now I feel like he is trying to get over on me.I said what's the point in both of us having coverage for the dog and me pay both our insurance every month, plus I would have to pay my own deductible if she did bite someone. He says my insurance would reimburse his...=0. Can a person even go after 2 insurance companies at once? i thought deductibles were 500- 1000 dollars.
