Reasonable accommodation is one of fair housing's most important topics and accounted for over 50% of the fair housing complaints to HUD in the past year. Reasonable accommodations can be requested at any point, during the application process, during tenancy and even during an eviction. Improperly handling a reasonable accommodation request, can lead property owners to be charged by HUD for a fair housing violation.
The costs and penalties incurred due to the complaint are also high. It is important to learn the correct procedure to ask for, review and implement this important action. Reasonable accommodations are requested because of a disability of either physical or mental nature. It is important that one understands the definition of disability and when it comes into play to allow a disabled person to enjoy the same quality of life as a non-disabled individual.
