My aunt was here yesterday for about 2 hours visiting and this myientence guy rudely came up to her and said the dogs not suppose to be here but the dog was her boyfriends service dog from having ptsd. He told her to take papers to the office but they were only here for 2 hours and the office was half an hour away.
My aunt was here yesterday for about 2 hours visiting and this myientence guy rudely came up to her and said the dogs not suppose to be here but the dog was her boyfriends service dog from having ptsd. He told her to take papers to the office but they were only here for 2 hours and the office was half an hour away. Today we just got a this note saying notice to perform or vacate? What does this mean? Are we being evicted because the dog was here for 2 hours serving his purpose to his owner?
US federal law (FHA) allows visitors to bring ASSISTANCE ANIMALS (including emotional support animals and service animals) to the housing (assuming the landlord is not exempt from the law).
BUT, the tenant must notify the landlord of request for the accommodation of allowing the assistance animal. If for some reason the assistance animal was a surprise to the tenant (ie they had an accountant coming to the home to provide the service and tenant didn't know accountant had a service dog), tenant would need to immediately notify the landlord.
I assume the boyfriend was present with the dog?
can you fax or email a disability accommodation request to the landlord? since the disability is not obvious, landlord can request medical documentation
even if the dog never comes again, its better to document it as a service dog….to avoid a hassle of the landlord trying to evict for having it there already
If there is documentation for the dog, bring it down, it stops the whole thing. If they are in fact documented service animals, the boyfriend has the right to bring them over. However, the apartment has the right to request the documentation and you have to show it. So just do your part and take it down there and the whole thing is cleared up and the dogs can come over in the future without an issue.
It was her boyfriend's dog; not hers.
If dogs aren't allowed in the property – that means they're not allowed, whether it's just a visit or not
Yes you are. Take the note to the office.
It means that if the dog comes again,you will be evicted.
