Advanced Reasonable Accommodations

Hoarding, Assistance Animals, etc.

Presented by Tia Politi

Did you know that an applicant can claim disability that requires you  to discount some or all of their past credit, criminal or rental history based on a prior addiction?  There's a lot to know about reasonable  accommodation and what you don't know can get you into hot water.

At the end of this course, attendees should be able to identify the types of  accommodations or modifications that a disabled person can request, the  documentation that can be required from the tenant to confirm the  disability-related need, and how to manage disabled tenants who violate the rules.

This class will cover:

  • What to do when an applicant submits a reasonable
    accommodation, either at the time of application or after denial.

  • What is reasonable?

  • What criminal history can pose a reasonable concern for
    danger to neighbors, the landlord or the landlord’s agent?

  • Caregivers, how to screen them and the forms to use to
    set up their right to occupy with the tenant.

  • Assistance animals

  • Hoarding

  • Mental health issues

  • Requests to grow or use marijuana

  • Requests to ignore bad behavior in the unit
    if the tenant is getting treatment.

  • Domestic violence and reasonable accommodation

  • Lease bifurcation
