Pet Polices Changing In Virginia

In Virginia, landlords with no pet policies must now make accommodations for service and emotional support animals. This comes as a relief to many pet owners facing housing challenges. Under the Fair Housing Act, discrimination against people with disabilities, including those who rely on service animals, is prohibited. Emotional support pets are also protected, even in buildings that typically don’t allow pets. This move aims to ensure equal access to housing for all residents, highlighting the importance of accommodation and inclusivity in rental policies.
