Daniel Nevis and Carrie MacIntosh Write on ADA Compliance for Commercial Property Owners

June 2015

Partner Daniel Nevis and Associate Carrie MacIntosh published an article in the June 2015 issue of Western Real Estate Business. In the article Carrie and Dan give an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and how it has resulted in a very large number of lawsuits filed against commercial property owners for violations of the Act, many of which are committed unknowingly. They go on to surmise that this rampant litigation does not appear to be slowing down, and one way property owners can mitigate against this is to have their facilities inspected for access compliance by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp). A CASp inspection (1) protects against meritless ADA lawsuits, (2) insures compliance with state and federal accessibility requirements, (3) identifies what is “readily achievable” in terms of implementing facility modifications, and (4) provides reasonable time frames to make required corrections.
