No. By law, a landlord must accommodate someone who has a service animal. This is true even if the landlord has a no pets policy. A landlord is required to waive its no pets policy to accommodate a disabled person in need of a service animal. A tenant in need of a service animal need only supply proof that the tenant is disabled and that their animal has been certified as a service animal or emotional support animal. Once such is provided, the landlord must accept the service animal. It is a violation of federal law for a landlord to attempt to evict someone who has a service animal or emotional support animal.
