My previous explanation involved my landlord accusing of false esa, and discriminatory action placed against my boyfriend walking around the complex. To continue, he questioned what disabilities I have which he is not aloud to do. He said there is only such thing as service animals, I told him there are three categories. We don’t want to be kicked out but we cannot stand this harrasment and questioning any longer. He has profiled us and our intentions.
You can sue your landlord for disability discrimination (point of correction - there is no such thing as a service animal under the Fair Housing Amendments Act, just a reasonable accommodation for your disabilities. If an animal helps with your disability, it's a reasonable accommodation), but ideally, you head off any potential eviction. Start by contacting your local fair housing organization. If they can't help you, then go straight into litigation. Look for attorneys who handle fair housing cases.
While I am an attorney with over fifteen years of experience, until we sign a retainer agreement, I am not YOUR attorney. My postings are meant for informational purposes only, and DO NOT constitute legal advice, nor do they create an attorney-client relationship between us. As such, the question, my answer, and any comments left to my answer, are not protected by attorney-client privilege. Also, keep in mind that all legal claims have relevant statute of limitations, some of which can be very short. So, if you believe you need to hire an attorney, and need legal advice, seek out legal representation as soon as possible.
