Landlords may be required to make modifications to their rental property to accommodate a tenant disability. A tenant with a disability is not entitled to a modification of the rental property unless the disabled tenant requests one. The disabled tenant must have the owner’s permission before making the modification, but the owner must allow the modification if the tenant with the disability meets the requirements for modification. Furthermore, a homewoner must not insist that a tenant with a disability move to another unit that already has the modification. The landlord may be able to require the disabled tenant to finance the modification to the rental property.
