No Pet violation

I have a tenant in Alabama that has broke her lease for an unauthorized pet, This large dog has clogged the air conditioning filters with hair and i had to pay $100.00 for repairs. Can i take this from her deposit for now eviction has started. I sent her a certified letter to get the dog out and posted one on the door. She does none of the requirements on the lease-like cutting grass. I also send a certified letter about lawn violations-8 days later i had to pay to get the grass cut. she had not cut the grass in 3 weeks,  can i also take this fee from her deposit? The lease does state to changed the air conditionings filters.

You want to make sure you itemize all of the deductions and be prepared to show receipts and evidence. Just in case your tenant denies or argues the point. I always take pictures and document everything! If you end up in court, your chances are greater if you can back up everything.
