Any new commercial lease or any amendment of an existing lease for a space of 7,500 square feet or less that is used as a “Public Accommodation” (as defined by the ADA), the landlord must give the existing or prospective tenant: (i) a written Disability Access Obligations Notice that must be signed by both the landlord and tenant, and (ii) a copy of the Small Business Commission’s Access Information Notice pamphlet (The Guide to Disabled Accessibility Compliance) in the tenant’s requested language.

The Guide to Accessibility Compliance brochure explains disabled access laws in detail and offers advice on how to protect your business from potential lawsuits. Since every business must comply with the Americans with Disability Act, this guide helps small businesses understand and meet those requirements. This brochure also serves as the Access Information Notice required by Administrative Code Chapter 38, where landlords must provide this information to tenants at the time of lease execution or amendment for spaces 7,500 sq. ft. or less.
