Lifehack or Scam?

lifehackscamHere’s a photo making the rounds on Facebook that is listed as a “Lifehack” and claims “If you pay$65 you can register your dog as an ‘Emotional Support Animal’ and it will be illegal for landlords to refuse to rent to you.” When we ran this by an attorney the response was that this is an abuse of the Fair Housing Act.

As with all fair housing issues you should consider each case carefully, and if you have any doubts you should definitely ask your attorney for advice, but consider this an early warning that you might start getting some misinformed prospects or customers through your door and you will want to be ready to address them.
