Can I ask if a rental applicant needs any accommodations for a physical disability?
A fellow landlord was stuck building a ramp to the front door of his rental house because 1 month after the tenants moved in he was informed that 1 of them had a mobility issue that wasn’t apparent (and never mentioned) when he showed the house. They also wanted the washer and dryer moved upstairs from the basement but he pointed out that providing a washer and dryer was optional on his part and would just remove them if they forced the issue. The house was built in 1940 and obviously wasn’t designed for somebody with mobility issues so that brings up the question, why did they even apply if they knew the house wasn’t as accessible as they needed?
So can I ask? I could see adding a short handrail for the single step that goes up the the kitchen but having someone move in and then expect the doorways all be 3’ would be a little (okay, a lot) too much.
