DisabledTo  meet Fair Housing laws, accommodations may be required to assist disabled tenants as early as the application process.

For example:

  • Tenants with vision disabilities – Read the application and/or lease aloud to the applicant.
  • Tenants with cognitive disabilities – Write application, rental agreement and notices in clear and simple terms; explain rental agreement and tenancy rules.
  • Psychiatric disabilities – Place an application back on the waiting list (if applicant missed intake interview or got paperwork in late due to the disability).
  • Physical disabilities – Allow mail-in applications and/or meet at an accessible location.
