 ACCESSIBILITY COMPLIANCE BASICS FOR APARTMENT OWNERS 

Just the mention of ADA compliance can make a multifamily investor flinch; accessibility regulations are complicated, often misunderstood, and potentially fraught with liability for property owners. In this session, licensed architect and Certified Access Specialist Christy Kim will discuss the basics of accessibility regulations for multifamily properties, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Fair Housing Amendments Act (FHAA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Breaking down the jargon, Ms. Kim will clarify how the codes apply to different housing scenarios and address widespread misconceptions about accessibility compliance. She’ll discuss the compliance problems she sees most frequently at multifamily sites. And, she’ll explain how to work with a Certified Access Specialist to improve accessibility and reduce liability at your properties.
