Sample Letter to Housing Provider Requesting Reasonable Accommodation
Dear [Landlord, Housing Authority, Homeowner’s Association]
I live at/am applying to rent your property at [address]. I am writing this letter to inform
you that I have a disability and that my disability would be greatly benefited by the use of
a service/emotional support animal.
M physician/psychiatrist/psychologist/therapist/social worker/occupational therapist has
recommended this accommodation for my disability. Please see the attached letter from
[doctor or professional’s name].
Federal and state law requires that a housing provider reasonably accommodate disabled
tenants/occupants. I am requesting that you reasonably accommodate my disability by
allowing me to have a service/emotional support animal live with me. Please feel free to
contact me at [your phone number and/or e-mail address] if you have any questions.
Thank you.
