NOTICE DISCLOSING TENANTS’ RIGHTS TO REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

Reasonable Accommodations

The New York State Human Rights Law requires housing providers to make reasonable accommodations or modifications to a building or living space to meet the needs of people with disabilities. For example, if you have a physical, mental, or medical impairment, you can ask your housing provider to make the common areas of your building accessible, or to change certain policies to meet your needs.

To request a reasonable accommodation, you should contact your property manager by calling (212) 348-3248 ext. 421 / (347) 736-9645 or emailing [email protected] You will need to show your housing provider that you have a disability or health problem that interferes with your use of housing, and that your request for accommodation may be necessary to provide you equal access and opportunity to use and enjoy your housing or the amenities and services normally offered by your housing provider.

If you believe that you have been denied a reasonable accommodation for your disability, or that you were denied housing or retaliated against because you requested a reasonable accommodation, you can file a complaint with the New York State Division of Human Rights as described at the end of this notice.

Specifically, if you have a physical, mental, or medical impairment, you can request:
□ Permission to change the interior of your housing unit to make it accessible (however, you are required to pay for these modifications, and in the case of a rental your housing provider may require that you restore the unit to its original condition when you move out)
□ Changes to your housing provider’s rules, policies, practices, or services;
□ Changes to common areas of the building so you have an equal opportunity to use the building. The New York State Human Rights Law requires housing providers to pay for reasonable modifications to common use areas.
Examples of reasonable modifications and accommodations that may be requested under the New York State Human Rights Law include:
□ If you have a mobility impairment, your housing provider may be required to provide you with a ramp or other reasonable means to permit you to enter and exit the building.
□ If your doctor provides documentation that having an animal will assist with your disability, you should be permitted to have the animal in your home despite a “no pet” rule.
□ If you need grab bars in your bathroom, you can request permission to install them at your own expense. If your housing was built for first occupancy after March 13, 1991 and the walls need to be reinforced for grab bars, your housing provider must pay for that to be done.
□ If you have an impairment that requires a parking space close to your unit, you can request your housing provider to provide you with that parking space or place you at the top of a waiting list if no adjacent spot is available.
□ If you have a visual impairment and require printed notices in an alternative format such as large print font or need notices to be made available to you electronically, you can request that accommodation from your landlord.
Required Accessibility Standards
All buildings constructed for use afterMarch 13, 1991, are required to meet the followingstandards:
□ Public and common areas must be readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities;
□ All doors must be sufficiently wide to allow passage by persons in wheelchairs; and
□ All multi-family buildingsmust contain accessible passageways, fixtures, outlets, thermostats, bathrooms, and kitchens.
If you believe that your building does not meet the required accessibility standards, you can file a complaint with the New York State Division of Human Rights.

How to File a Complaint
A complaint must be filed with the Division within one year of the alleged discriminatory act. You can find more information on your rights, and on the procedures for filing a complaint, by going to www.dhr.ny.gov, or by calling 1-888-392-3644 with questions about your rights. You can obtain a complaint form on the website, or one can be e-mailed or mailed to you. You can also call or e-mail a Division regional office. The regional offices are listed on the website.

 REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS VERIFICATION FORM

The person identified below has submitted the attached request for an accommodation under The Fair Housing Act, which requires owners/managers of this site to make reasonable accommodations in rules, policies, practices, or services when such accommodation is necessary to afford an individual with disabilities equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling unit and common areas. The review of reasonable accommodation requests will follow the NYS Human Rights Law’s definition of a “disability”.
To meet the specific needs of individuals with disabilities, we ask your cooperation in providing the following information and returning it in the enclosed self-addressed, stamped envelope and/or above fax number. Your prompt return of this information will help assure timely processing of the individual’s request for accommodation.

1. Is this resident disabled?
The NYS Human Rights Law defines the term “disability as (a) a physical, mental or medical impairment resulting from anatomical, physiological, genetic or neurological conditions which prevents the exercise of a normal bodily function or is demonstrable by medically accepted clinical or laboratory diagnostic techniques
or (b) a record of such an impairment or (c) a condition regarded by others as such an impairment, provided, however, that in all provisions of this article dealing with employment, the term shall be limited to disabilities which, upon the provision of reasonable accommodations, do not prevent the complainant from performing in a reasonable manner the activities involved in the job or occupation sought or held. The Fair Housing Act defines a person with a disability as someone with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, someone who has a record of such an impairment, or someone regarded as having such an impairment. Major life activities include such functions as walking, breathing, seeing, hearing, working, etc. A disability can be temporary or permanent. Persons with temporary disabilities are protected against discrimination in the same way as are persons who have
permanent disabilities.
