Reasonable Accommodations for

Emotional Support Animals (ESAs)

An accommodation may be made for an animal that does not qualify as a service animal.

Written Request.

We ask that you provide written documentation of your request for a reasonable accommodation of your ESA. Verbal requests are acceptable, but it is in your best interest for this to be in writing.

Physician's Care.

You need a letter from the licensed healthcare professional currently treating you, indicating your need for the ESA. This letter must be written within 3 months of your move in date and updated annually.

Owner Control.

You must be able to control your animal. While the animal does not have to be trained to perform any particular task, it does have to respond to your command to come when you call it.

Know Your Rights!

Reliable information concerning Service Animals and ESAs can be found on the Department of Housing and Urban Development's website.
