How To Request An Accommodation

Next » « Previous


Think through what accommodation or accommodations you need to permit you to reasonably live in a premises.

Get an idea of what will be involved in making the accommodation before approaching your landlord. For instance, if there is a cost involved, how much it will cost? How much time will it take?

You can likely get an estimate by calling a few local contractors or supply companies. Contractors will usually look at your home at no cost and give you remodeling ideas to fit your needs. They can also give you cost estimates for different options. Perhaps a family member or friend has expertise in the area.

When you approach the landlord, keep in mind that the landlord may not be aware of the law. It is better to try to negotiate for what you need before bringing up the law because mention of the law may sound like a threat. If negotiation isn't your strength, ask a family member or friend to do it for you.
