Glankler Brown Business Law. Period.
Tennessee law allows owners or managers to decide whether to allow tenants with pets to lease an apartment on property. For those communities which do allow pets, particularly those that allow dogs, a well thought out pet policy is very important to ensure the safety of tenants, visitors, staff, and the property itself.
A tenant bankruptcy filing will impede a landlord's ability to proceed with filing an eviction proceeding or carrying out the court-ordered eviction process. A tenant can stop an eviction by filing for a Chapter 7 (Liquidation) or Chapter 13 (Wage Earner) bankruptcy. Once the tenant files for bankruptcy, federal law, under 11 U.S.C. §362(a)-(b), imposes an "automatic stay" which prevents all creditors, including landlords, from pursuing repayment of debt and/or eviction.
