Requests for emotional support animals cause the most Fair Housing anxiety among landlords. If the person has a letter saying they have a disability and need an ESA to assist with the disability, then Fair Housing says we must allow it. There are many legitimate claims and needs, but there are also a lot of con artists gaming the system. Some landlords will (incorrectly) say, “I am exempt from the Fair Housing laws. No animals allowed. Period. End Of Discussion.” Which would be good for them, if only they were really exempt!
