Frequently Asked Questions
Who can write an ESA letter in Illinois?
Emotional support animal letters must be written by a “licensed healthcare professional” according to U.S. Department of Housing guidelines. Licensed healthcare professionals include psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, and licensed counsellors.
Can a landlord deny an emotional support animal in Illinois?
The Fair Housing Act states that an owner of an emotional support animal cannot refuse to rent to an owner of an ESA, nor can the landlord impose additional rent or pet fees on the ESA owner. Even if your landlord doesn’t allow pets, they can still break the FHA by not allowing an assistance animal, if an ESA has damaged the property.
How can I get an ESA letter for housing in Illinois?
A valid ESA letter must be drawn up by a qualified mental health practitioner. It can be obtained from an existing provider (if applicable) or through the application form provided by My ESA DOCTOR.
How many emotional support animals can I have in Illinois?
The maximum number of emotional support animals (ESAs) an individual may have is not specified in any regulations. However, an individual may have multiple ESAs provided that the animal or animals do not contravene any applicable state or local regulations and that the therapist agrees that the ESAs are necessary for the individual’s well-being.
