Event Details

A tenant can make a disability accommodation request, including use of an assistance animal at any time. They must also be permitted to make reasonable disability-related modifications to the property. Are you bound by law to deliver whatever they ask? Attorney and RHAWA Legal Counsel, Chris Benis has represented clients in many cases related to making accommodations for disabled tenants. In this 90 minute session he will explain the interactive process to follow when determining reasonable solutions, and share memorable examples highlighting what to do, and what not to do.

This session is offered ONLINE only. After class, all participants will receive a link to recorded session (accessible for 30 days) and downloadable materials for review.
