Many business and commercial property owners are under the false impression that they are compliant because they have a city, county, and/or state license, or they believe they are “grandfathered” due to the age of the building. Regardless of the permits and age of the building all businesses and commercial properties open to the public are subject to some level of compliance. Tenants and landlords are both joint and severely responsible for being compliant. Violations are easy to find.
Under the ADA, business and commercial properties open to the public are required to allow people with disabilities access to all portions of the business which are open to the general public. Access must include, among other things, properly designated parking, with no steps or curbs blocking an entrance. Bathrooms and aisles must be able to accommodate customers with wheelchairs and counters with a specific height. The law allows a disabled person who has been denied access to any business or commercial property because of violations, to file a lawsuit without complaining to anyone prior to filing that lawsuit.
