Landlord Mitigation Tool [Pro]

An emotional support animal is a type of assistance animal that is recognized as a "reasonable accommodation" for a person with a disability under the federal Fair Housing Act.  According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the assistance animal is not a pet.

There are only two questions that HUD says a housing provider should consider with a request for an assistance animal as a reasonable accommodation:

  1. Does the person seeking to use and live with the animal have a disability — i.e., a mental or physical impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities?
  2. Does the person making the request have a disability-related need for an assistance animal?
