Beware of ESA's online registries.

Beware of ESA's online registries.

It seems like the number of people saying their pets are ESA’s are growing in numbers and many are not getting the proper documents for them to be protected under the law. However most people don’t know what an ESA is or even what the law is on them and many landlords are willing to allow them without them having the proper document due to not knowing.

    American Service Pets, is this a Scam?

    I have a question. Does the tenant have to let me know that he or she has an animal before they move in, even though the lease reads no pets. no animals of any kind. Thanks

    emotional dogs are not trained and disturbs real working class dogs. they need to keep a pet hamster for a pet and not a dog

    90% not emotional support dog. Purchase ESA – not ok – need your doctor RX. Rip off ! Licensed Mental Health Dr is needed

    I am so thankful for videos like this that shares truthful information regarding ESA’s and SD’s. I personally do not have an ESA or SD, but I do have a dog as a pet. Sadie is a 45 pound rescue pup that I adopted at 8 weeks old from our local humane society, she is now 8-1/2 years old. I lived in my previous rental for 6 years and I’ve lived in my current rental for 1. Shes never used the bathroom inside the new rental and in the 6 years we lived in our previous rental she had only one accident by the front door (on the tile) when she was sick. Sadie is fully house trained in the sense that she absolutely will not use the bathroom inside the house and that she does not chew or destroy furniture or property that isn’t a toy that belongs to her.

    We wanted to move from our previous rental around year 3 to something smaller so that we could start putting back money for a deposit to buy a house of our own. We looked for basically two years for a new place and the issue we ran into most frequently was either a) no pets of any kind allowed at all b) no pets over 25 lbs or c) breed restrictions. Sadie is a mutt, a rescue, she’s blonde and white and mostly looks like a mix between maybe a plott hound/some type of hound, and some type of possible bully breed since she has square features on her head shape. One of these days I’m gonna do a doggy DNA kit so I can finally know for certain lol! Unfortunately, we didn’t meet any of the above pet criteria as most places with breed restrictions consider her a pit bull mix based on her physical trails. Her papers say she is a boxer mix, but she’s clearly not a boxer at all lol she is just near the same color as some boxers. It’s pretty hard to accurately classify a 6 week old puppy without any knowledge at all of its lineage, so the humane society tries its best on puppy adoption paperwork for their breed. Our previous rental required a $350 NON REFUNDABLE pet deposit AND $10/mo pet rent. That’s generally the going rates for NRF pet deposits in my area and some rentals go up to as high as $30/mo extra for pet rent. I don’t mind paying the extra money, my dog is my family, but it sucks when I’m moving out of a spotless unit and my $350 has no damages to be applied to, yet I still don’t get it back. A lot of renters children are wayyyy more destructive than Sadie has ever thought about being.

    My current rental is a house with an individual owner/landlord rather than a leasing agency/complex and the listing very clearly and plainly listed “no pets”. One of my regular customers brought by a flyer for a rental that was coming available for the house that was beside his. He wasn’t the owner or anything, he was just helping spread the listing for the owners since the available home was next door to his own home. As soon as she handed me the paper ad and I read the details of the home for rent, I called instantly to get the first appointment to view the property the next morning which was the first day it went on the market. I filled out the application ahead of timeand showed up to the appt and had just brought my pup with me to meet the owner for the viewing. I wanted her to see how well behaved my pup is and meet her in person. I explained I didn’t want to waste her time viewing the apartment if there were absolutely no exceptions to the pet policy. I explained I lived in my last rental for 6 years and I wanted to downsize to attack my student loans and save for a deposit to buy my own house. I also happily invited her over to my current apartment so she could see the home we’d been living in for 6 years (to show our house wasn’t piss filled and destructed). She declined the offer to visit LOL, but she did accept my offer on the spot to rent the place and agreed on a $250 NRF pet deposit and added a pet addendum to the lease for me. I paid the pet deposit, first and last months rent, and signed my new lease within an hour of her meeting me and my Sadie girl. I’m so glad I took Sadie with me that morning to see that property. I had no idea if it would persuade her, but damn I’m so glad it did!

    Irresponsible pet owners and pet owners who try to abuse the ESA/SD tenant laws are the people who make it absolutely impossible for people like me and Sadie to find a nice place to live.

    I totally understand why some landlords opt for no pet policies, there’s always that one incident that ruin things for everyone else. For example…. Two older women lived in the same building as me at my previous apartment. These ladies absolutely destroyed an entire apartment and caused thousands of dollars in damages because they are shitty irresponsible pet owners. They had one dog that was so overweight it could barely walk! It was a small breed dog that probably should’ve weight around 10-15 pounds, but it was way closer to weighing around 30. I never once saw that dog being walked on a leash, it always sat out on their front porch and growled and snapped at every person that walked by. I know that dog had to potty inside their apartment because, like i said, i never saw anyone out walking that dog. They also had 30+ cats hoarded in their 2br apartment. There was so much cat piss and shit all over the floors that it had actually seeped through the carpet, seeped through the subfloors, and rotted away some of the underpinning wooden beams that held up the flooring structure from the ground. When they moved out maintenance left their windows and doors open for 3 straight weeks in an attempt to not only help the overwhelming cat piss and shit smell, but also because there were so many cats in there that some of them had created passageways through holes in the walls and cabinets so cats were living between the walls. The smell was so overwhelming during the first couple weeks, it would punch you in the face from the parking lot when you opened your car door. Those poor cats that had to live their lives like that in their own shit and piss. Those disgusting women and people like them are the reason that good tenants like me, with a fully house trained pet, can’t find a place to live.

  16. Walther Forstmann on May 26, 2022 at 1:23 am

    As of Jan. 1, 2017, the ADA no longer legally considers ESA or therapy
    dogs as Service Animals or Service Animal in Training. This is a scam.
    Know the Laws.
