Does the ADA Cover Private Homes & Apartments?

The ADA does not cover strictly residential private apartments and homes.

If, however, a place of public accommodation, such as a doctor’s office or day care center, is located in a private residence, those portions of the residence used for that purpose are subject to the ADA’s requirements.

The Fair Housing Act requires landlords and condo associations to allow people with disabilities to make modifications to the homes and to request reasonable accommodations like a reserved parking space.
