Does having an Emotional Support Animal exempt me from pet deposits in housing?
Yes. Having an Emotional Support Animal exempts you from all pet deposits, regardless of whether the facility allow pets or not. You are not required to provide a pet deposit or supplemental fees, these must be waived. An ESA owner CAN be charged for actual damage done by the animal, but they may not require the applicant to pay a fee or a security deposit in order to keep the animal. In addition, an ESA owner who does not properly manage his/her pet, resulting in behavior that is unruly, destructive, aggressive, or a disturbance to others can be evicted.
