Tenant Issues: Landlord Loses Case Involving an Emotional Support Pet and Tenant Allergies
Play • 6 min
An Iowa landlord got caught in an impossible situation. He said “yes” to an emotional support dog, and that dog ended up bothering another tenant who had allergies. The allergic tenant sued because she rented the apartment with the understanding that no pets were allowed, and the court sided with her because she was there first. The case itself has an important lesson for landlords dealing with the conflicting needs of its tenants.   This has not been an easy dispute to resolve. The case worked its way to the Iowa Supreme court where Chief Justice Susan Christensen acknowledged that the landlord got himself into a “pickle” trying to satisfy the needs of both tenants.   www.NewsForInvestors.com
