Information for Individuals with Disabilities

Talk with your potential landlord beforehand about the accessibility features of the property. What type of resources do you need?

  • Are there in-unit features such as grab bars, sufficient clear floor space, appropriately located outlets and switches, or emergency alarm systems designed for individuals with hearing and/or vision loss?
  • Are all of the common areas of the building, such as the mail room, laundry, and hallways, accessible as well?
  • If alterations are needed for the unit to fully suit your needs, will the landlord provide or facilitate them?
