Landlord Tenant Act 2018 Revision
B. A person with a disability may submit a request for a reasonable accommodation to maintain an assistance animal in a dwelling pursuant to the Fair Housing Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. S 3601 et seq., the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, 42 U.S.C., S12101 et seq., and S 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, 19 U.S.C., S701 or any other federal, state, or local law. Unless the person making the request has a disability or disability-related need for an assistance animal that is readily apparent, the landlord may request reliable supporting documentation that:
(1) is necessary to verify that the person meets the definition of disability pursuant to the Fair Housing Act.
(2) Describes the needed accommodation
(3) Shows the relationship between the person’s disability and the need for the requested accommodation.
The landlord may independently verify the authenticity of any supporting documentation. Supporting documentation acquired through purchase or exchange of funds for goods and services shall be fraudulent supporting documentation.
C. A landlord shall not be liable for injuries by a person’s assistance animal permitted on the landlord’s property as a reasonable accommodation to assist the person with a disability pursuant to the requirements of Subsection B of this section.
D. If a person obtains a reasonable housing accommodation under this section by knowingly making a false claim of having a disability requiring the use of an assistance animal or by knowingly providing fraudulent supporting documentation in connection with the claim, the landlord may remedy the person’s non-compliance by the procedures authorized pursuant to the Oklahoma Residential Landlord and Tenant act in S132 of Title 41 of the Oklahoma Statutes. Additionally, a prevailing landlord in an eviction action under this section may receive an award of court costs and fees, plus damages not to exceed One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) from the tenant.
