04 Dec ADA Compliance: Buildings, Landlords, and Tenants
The Duties of Landlords and Tenants
Let’s say you’re a small business owner leasing a facility and you want to make sure it is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). So, who is in charge of making any needed changes? You or your landlord? In this video, #MattTheLawyer talks through who should be doing what when it comes to installing ramps for wheelchairs, wider doors, accommodations in bathrooms, etc. This is particularly relevant for those in older buildings (pre-1990 construction).

Now, let’s assume you’re in an older building and you have to retrofit that building to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. That can be expensive. So you may be wondering, “Where do I start?” Well the ADA regulations actually provide guidance on that matter. So watch this video from #MattTheLawyer and see what the ADA suggests.
