I have a Prescriptive letter specifically stating I need to walk my ESA on the premises even though the rules state "no dog walking". I emailed the Doctor's letter to Fair Housing and they said it met all the requirements for the purpose intended. Now I'm afraid the board will drag their feet getting me an answer, so I would like to have the legal backing for their time limit to answer my request.
There's no precise time, just a "reasonable" one. But the burden is on them, not you, once you've provided the information supporting your and your ESA's status. If you've done so, you should be able to walk your animal until and unless they say otherwise, with an explanation (based on both facts and law) of their legal position. Note, your right to walk your animal is generally going to be limited to public or semi-public areas (e.g. open to all residents of the HOA) that are not naturally off-limits to dogs, such as dining areas or swimming pools.
(If you're really worried about the timing, a week should be plenty for them, ten days at the most.)
