Emotional Support Dog (by 002 [IL]) Posted on: Jun 9, 2020 10:09 PM

Looking for Illinois information surrounding "Emotional Support Dogs". We have an existing tenant that moved a dog into the home. A larger "pit bull' looking dog. We responded quickly with a 10 Day notice of lease violation served by our paper server (for effect). As our lease is very specific, this home has thousands in new carpet and pad and our insurance carrier is dog nervous. He quickly responded by text that the dog is an emotional support animal and will have documentation to use quickly. We of course did not respond. Looking online it appears easy to get the paperwork needed to show the animal is for support and Illinois law appears to give emotional support animals the same status as service animals. Am I correct? What might be a course of action? Thoughts? Comments?

Been a while since I have leaned on the collective here, but I know who to trust.
