Landlord Tenant Guide to Service and Assistance Animals

Are you in compliance with the rules and regulations for service and assistance animals?Housing providers are required to provide reasonable accommodations from their rules and regulations for tenants who have a disability as defined by the Fair Housing Act and who are able to demonstrate that the accommodation requested is necessary to afford the tenant equal opportunity to use and enjoy the dwelling. As requests for reasonable accommodations for service and assistance animals are increasing, including those for emotional support animals, housing providers and their agents should be aware of the law surrounding such requests and should be able to recognize the common pitfalls, often innocent, that can occur when the law is not followed. This topic will provide practical information to the persons responsible for responding to requests for reasonable accommodations for service and assistance animals. The information will enable you to understand who is eligible for an accommodation under the law, the process for requesting and obtaining an accommodation for service or assistance animals, in what situations such requests may be denied, and whether any limitations can be placed on such animals. This material is critical for housing providers and their agents to ensure that they do not find themselves unknowingly violating the Fair Housing Act.
