1Am I Disabled under the Fair Housing Act and don’t realize it?

Very possible! According to the US Department of Housing & Urban Development [HUD], the federal agency enforcing the federal Fair Housing Act, a disability person is- "Any person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; has a record of such impairment; or is regarded as having such an impairment." If any of your major life activities are substantially limited you might be disabled under the Fair Housing Act.

2Can a property require medical documentation, or require a letter from a “doctor only” to prove my disability?

A property cannot require medical documentation, or require detailed medical information, nor can a property require the documentation come only from a doctor or physician.  According to HUD, If the disability is “not readily apparent” or known by the housing provider, like PTSD, Autism, or TBI, the housing provider may ask for “reliable documentation” to verify the disability.  According to HUD, a reliable source could be “a doctor or other medical professional, a peer support group, a non-medical service agency, or a reliable third party who is in a position to know about the individual's disability.”  So, a property cannot require the reliable source be a doctor, however a doctor could be a reliable source.
