Reasonable Accommodations

Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, also known as the Fair Housing Act, 42 U.S.C. Sec 3601-3618, prohibits discrimination in housing on the basis of physical or mental disability.

The Department of Justice and Department of Housing and Urban Development issued a joint statement defining such discrimination:

“refusal to make reasonable accommodations in rules, policies, practices or services when they are necessary to provide a person with a disability the equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling.”

This means, “Yes, you might have to install a handicapped ramp.”  There are exceptions to the rule.
