Reminder: ADA Accessibility Disclosures Required in Commercial Leases Beginning July 1, 2013


ADA Accessible Route signA friendly reminder from your neighborhood construction attorney . . .

As I mentioned in an earlier post, legislation enacted this past year which established a new California Civil Code section 1938 will require that commerical property owners disclose in lease agreements executed on or after July 1, 2013 whether the property being leased has been inspected by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp) and, if so, whether the property has been determined to meet all applicable construction-related accessibility standards under California Civil Code section 55.53.

So make sure your as-of-July 1, 2013 leases are updated folks!
