On December 16, 1999, plaintiff signed a rental agreement for a low-income apartment operated by defendant. Paragraph 23 of the agreement contained a “no pets” clause. Plaintiff did not advise defendant of her pets, and moved into the apartment on January 2, 2000. On January 10, 2000, a maintenance worker discovered the pets in the apartment.
