If you are a resident with a disability or medical condition that affects your ability to enjoy your rental property, you may be entitled to reasonable accommodations under federal and state fair housing laws. At EGL Properties, we are committed to helping all our residents live comfortably and fully enjoy their rental homes. If you need a reasonable accommodation, here is what you need to know about applying for one.
What is a Reasonable Accommodation?
A reasonable accommodation is a change in the rules, policies, or practices of a rental property that is necessary to allow a tenant with a disability to enjoy their home. This can include things like making structural modifications to the property, allowing a service animal, or waiving a no-pet policy. The goal of a reasonable accommodation is to eliminate any barriers that might prevent a tenant with a disability from using and enjoying their rental property.
How to Apply for a Reasonable Accommodation
To apply for reasonable accommodation, you should start by completing the form below. You will need to provide documentation from a healthcare provider that explains the nature of your disability or medical condition and how it affects your ability to use and enjoy your rental property. You may also need to provide additional documentation, such as a request for a service animal or a request for a modification to the property.
Once we receive your request for reasonable accommodation, we will review it and decide whether the accommodation is reasonable and necessary. We may need to consult with outside experts or get additional information from you or your healthcare provider. We will make our determination in writing and let you know whether your accommodation has been approved.
At EGL Properties, we are committed to ensuring that all our tenants have access to the homes they need and deserve. If you need a reasonable accommodation, please don’t hesitate to start the application process.
