What the What? How to Approach Emotional Support Animal Requests
Legal/Fair Housing

Room: B303

Reasonable accommodation requests for assistance animals—including emotional support animals—are a leading regulatory cause for concern. Because they affect an owner’s ability to assess pet deposits and fees, have bearing on the application of rules and policies concerning a resident’s animal and expose owners to possible fair housing complaints, it is of primary importance to learn about the theory of the law as well as its practical applications. Explore the tools available in the NAA member toolkit to help owners navigate this complicated issue, including answers to frequently asked questions, scripts to help owners communicate with residents more effectively and HUD-approved sample forms. (FRI-A07)
