Dear Customer, If you are living in an apartment complex, the complex is going to be governed by the ADA and FHA laws, you cannot be evicted for a service animal or emotional support animal (with appropriate documentation from a medical provider - even an out of state provider).

So just because they don't like the timeline of when the approval letter was gotten and consider it dishonest,they cannot force me to move correct?

That is correct. While they can disregard a fraudulent letter, they cannot disregard a late letter.
