While the specific situation described here was likely resolved years ago, I thought I would add some info here that could be useful to others who stumble upon this later. Disclaimer: I am neither an agent nor an attorney, but am generally familiar with service dog law.

The obligations of housing providers to accommodate animals that benefit individuals with disabilities are described here: The regulations apply equally to trained service dogs and to other animals that help individuals with disabilities (commonly referred to as "emotional support animals", although I have occasionally heard them referred to as therapy animals as well).

Both homeowners' associations and landlords need to comply with these regulations.

Short answer: an HOA and (most) landlords must waive no-pets policies and size restrictions for animals that benefit individuals with disabilities. So on the face of it, the HOA's actions described here are illegal.

However, the HOA is within their rights to require the dog be removed on the basis of the fact that it appears to be a direct threat to the health and safety of others. A court would most likely find that a large dog's snapping at someone is sufficient evidence that the dog is a direct threat, regardless of the fact that the dog was being teased at the time.

I hope this helps.

As you're already aware, Trulia is not a real estate company and only advertises property for sale. Since you will use an agent to purchase a home in Scottsdale, you might as well make the break now, and find an agent who can provide accurate information, in a timely manner, of only the properties you want to see.

Message me, or use the Find an Agent tab at the top of the page to get started.

Good luck!

We live at 141st Street and Bajada Drive (south off of Dynamite) and it is always 10 to 15 degrees cooler than Phoenix temperature. The views of the McDowells, 4 peaks and all the hiking and riding trails are wonderful. The price on homes here is considerable less than elsewhere in Scottsdale.

Scottsdale has tons of hotels, and even more motels. What are you looking for in the hotel exactly? I know that they have one for every budget, and with all kinds of amenities. I have stayed in Scottsdale many times.

Each city tracks these statistics. As agents, we must lead you to the source (ie. the police web site). In Scottsdale, for example, the site is:

Google "(city name) crime statistics."

Here you can see plenty of information on crime linked to a map of the city. You can then locate any home you are interested in and see the crime activity (if any).

How do you mean "snatched up"... it's a buyer's market and I see price reductions on 20% of the MLS listings in Scottsdale and Fountain Hills. The buyers have the upper hand and if you see any "snatching up" it means the situation isn't really understood. Look deeper. ... more

Mother of Scottsdale Student.

Saguaro High is a bit smaller and may be a good choice compared to Chaparral or Desert Mountain. Coronado is not good for you and I just don't know about Arcadia. Make sure that you have a doctor document your anxiety and then work with the school psychologist from the very outset. Also make sure everyone is aware of the issue. You may also consider getting on a '504' Plan which might help. You can get info on this from the District website. ... more
