Do landlords have to comply with ADA?
Then, do rental properties have to be ADA compliant?
The truth is, there are no apartment properties that have Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) units. Thus, while the ADA – signed into law in 1990 – applies to multifamily properties, it does not apply to the dwelling units. All areas of public accommodation must be fully-accessible.
Besides, what is an ADA compliant apartment?
ADA stands for Americans with Disabilities Act. An ADA modified apartment is one where modifications have been made to accommodate tenants with disabilities. The ADA legally requires tenants with disabilities to make “reasonable” modifications to an apartment.
The ADA does not apply to religious organizations and private clubs, entities which historically have been exempt from federal civil rights laws. Places of worship and other facilities controlled by a religious organization, such as a school or day care center, are not subject to the ADA Standards.
