By law landlords may be required to make reasonable accomodations. But, what does the term reasonable accomodations really mean when a landlord who might rent to someone with a disability? If you have a disability and rent, you have a right to know who to ask for and how you can get assistance to make your home accessible for your needs.

  • The honest answer really opens up Pandora’s Box of more questions and answers than any one can ever expected. Opinions don’t count. But there are laws.containing specific words.  Those words spell out  the “it all depends…” and what is really reasonable is not a one size fits all answer for evey need.

It often takes a team of professionals to evaluate and write a request. Just because some one wants an accomodation or even needs it, does not guarantee a reasonable accomodation will be granted. That can really stink! Plan B or C may need to be initiated.
