THE LANDLORD CANNOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST YOU BASED ON YOUR NEED TO HAVE THE ASSISTANCE OF AN ANIMAL BASED UPON A DISABILITY
This directly addresses symptoms of physical or psychological disabilities if you are in this category; your position is well supported in Federal and State law. For a landlord to not allow you to have a necessary service animal would be a denial to a handicapped person and a denial of equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling unit. The law clearly acknowledges that the assist of animals do provide a wide range of benefits to people with disabilities. If an individual truly has a disability, any landlord’s denial of a tenants request for an accommodation of a services support animal may result in a valid claim for discrimination on the basis of disability.
