ESA exemption in Oregon state?

Posted Feb 6 2024, 17:14

I have a potential tenant who has an emotional supporting animal, and a letter from her psychologist saying the ESA is for a mental disability. I have a no pets policy for my rental, a one bedroom apartment that is an ADU on the bottom floor of a larger house that is a separate rental above, because there is less insulation between the walls, and the noise carries and barking could disrupt the other tenants. I'm trying to determine whether I am exempt from the FHA policy regarding ESAs because it's a single-family house with a potential for greater noise disruption, or because of the fact that I own only two single-family rentals in the state of Oregon. I've read that both may be possible, but I'm having a hard time finding sources that confirm exactly. Does anyone know? Thanks so much, and I understand this is not professional legal advice.
