You Can't Charge A "Pet Fee" For A Service Dog

by

An apartment management company near Purdue's campus is accused of violating state civil rights laws by demanding a disabled tenant pay more for a service dog.

The Indiana Civil Rights Commission said that the management company violated the Indiana Fair Housing Act when it issued a notice of eviction to a disabled tenant who refused to pay a pet fee for a service animal.

The Fair Housing Act prevents property owners from denying the use of a service animal and\or charging pet fee.

The management company denies the claim and has 30 days to answer the charge.
