How to Prevent Emotional Support Animal Discrimination Lawsuits

Event Navigation

Emotional support animal requests have become borderline absurd as of late, leaving landlords confused and vulnerable to lawsuits. We’ve invited Attorney/Author, Robert Friedman to provide updates on the latest laws and answer these frequently asked questions:

  • What is the difference between a service animal, a therapy dog, a psychiatric service dog and an emotional support animal (ESA)?
  • Does an ESA need specialized training?
  • What exceptions are there to the law?
  • What documentation may a landlord request from the tenant who needs an ESA?
  • Can the landlord charge a pet security deposit or extra rent for an ESA?
  • Can animals other than cats and dogs act as ESAs?
  • How much are tenants being awarded for discrimination against ESAs?
  • What special lease language should be used for ESAs?
  • What laws protect the landlord if the tenant misrepresents the need for an ESA?
