Asks for ESA (by Jo [CT]) Posted on: May 14, 2024 10:03 AM
Message:

I rent out individual rooms within a house as I have lots of college students. Most of the time they donít know each other, but itís worked out well and they all get along.

I have this one young woman sheís not a student she works, and sheís been with me for about two years. Always pays rent early, is quiet, respectful, I donít hear a peep from her.

Yesterday out of the blue, she sent me a text, she was wondering if she could get the paperwork could she have an emotional support animal?

She is polite and respectful and last year I let her have a little hamster, and I thanked her for asking.

I didnít say no as you have to be careful what you say, but I did tell her that it may be a problem since she has roommates because some people are allergic to animals and that could present an issue. I told her if she lived by herself, it would be fine, but she has other people in the apartment to consider

Her response was ďthatís fair, I could understand thatď. She said she wanted to get a cat. I love cats, but I also have two leather couches in that apartment and I could just imagine it being shred to ribbons.

I know if she found a place that would take an ESA she would move, I even told her I could ask around to any of my other Landlord friends, however, I would need notice and I know I would not have trouble renting that room.

I hate to lose her because she is very nice and always asks for permission on things. However, it seems like her heart is set on getting this cat. I do have to give her a timeline as I work on Academic schedule any thoughts? --68.191.xx.xxx

Your hating to see her go is my version of good riddance. I donít see an ESA in that environment ending well. But Iím hardcore anti-ESA. --24.152.xxx.xx

Just go cut open the couch and save her the trouble, a dog would have a blast with the stuffing. --184.59.xxx.xx

"Sure you can have an ESA cat. No, we don't charge extra rent, deposits or fees. However, you will be responsible for replacing the carpet right away if the cat pees on it or scratches it, and if any of your roommates complain of allergic reactions you will be responsible for the costs of professionally cleaning the unit as often as needed to mitigate their allergies. Estimates range from $1000-$5000 for carpets and $400 per cleaning, probably at least weekly but maybe more often. How soon do you want to get your cat?"

AKA, how to get tenants to reconsider their ESA requests. --172.58.xx.xx

Then sit back and wait for the other roommates to want a pet. Follow Sid's and WMH's advice to the letter. Be approving but discouraging at the same time. --108.69.xxx.xxx

You gave her an inch with the hamster, now she wants the mile.

My first thought was as Ken said, the college students are rubbing off on her. --76.129.xxx.xx

An ESA is not a pet. Ask if they have a pet "no" ask if the have any animals then they should disclose the ESA --172.59.xxx.xxx
