Do you have a knee or hip problem that is limiting your mobility?
Are you sick of going to buildings that don’t either have ramp access or steps/stairs with a decent handrail?
Local and national laws require that commercial properties be friendly to the disabled or else they may suffer the consequences.
Landlords who fail to meet disability regulations may be sued and may risk being persecuted by the full extent of the law.
Some examples of these commercial properties may include:
- Retail Stores
- Hotels and Other Types of Lodging
- Movie Theatres
- Private Schools
- Doctors’ Offices
- Day Cares
- Homeless Shelters
- Funeral Homes
Here is a link to more information for commercial landlords to take steps to improve accessibility to their buildings for everyone.
