Someone I know has a court ordered confidential address (due to domestic violence) that allows them to use PO Boxes for all correspondences and their name and physical address cannot be made public.
Their apartment is refusing to renew the lease unless they registers with a third-party pet screening website that states that it collects personal information and shares it outside the country. They let the landlord know that they cannot register with the site since that violates the court order; however, the landlord is saying that they will not renew the lease unless they register (even though they have no animals).
What is their defense against this?
Although the apartments are mean, have had their car towed several times for not displaying the parking placard, had to do plumbing on the apartment 3 times for flooding coming from upstairs (while not putting them up anywhere while they did the week-long construction) and even tried to have them sign a 13-month lease calling it a 12-month lease... this is their only option at the moment.
