  • Tenants with Disabilities and Reasonable Accommodations

    Tenants with disabilities can ask their landlord to accommodate their disabilities. For example, a tenant could ask a landlord to allow a service animal in a "no pets" apartment complex; a tenant who receives a disability benefits check on the third day of each month could ask to pay the rent on that day with no late fees; and a tenant with a wheelchair could ask a landlord to allow the tenant to build a ramp to the entrance of the unit.
