Charging an extra fee or deposit imposes an unreasonable burden for tenants with disabilities who need assistance animals, and it places a financial burden on something necessary for their full use and enjoyment of their apartment that non disabled tenants do not have to bear.

Question: I run a rental property that has a "no pets" policy. I have a tenant who has made a reasonable accommodation request to have a companion dog. I understand that I Nike Air Force 1 Womens Size 7 need to let her have her dog, because companion animal support dogs are not pets. But I'm worried her dog will tear up the flooring and destroy the apartment.
