How to handle a disabled Tenant's requestFeb 08, 2024
There's confusion about Tenant disabilities:
When to do something.
Some folks think you gotta be a mind reader.
Like you've got a crystal ball hidden in the basement next to the Christmas decorations.
Right, and I'm the Tooth Fairy...
Maybe they need a closer parking spot.
Could be an exception to the 'no-pets' policy.
Here's the deal:
If a Tenant needs something special because of a disability, they've go to ask you first.
So, before you start redrawing parking lines or setting up a fire-breathing pet zone, wait for the ask.
Now, this doesn't mean you turn a cold shoulder.
If your Tenant's request is (1) reasonable and (2) doable, you make it happen.
You stay legal.
And make life a bit easier for someone who needs it.
