When Are Repairs To A Facility Not “Readily Achievable”?
BY SCOTT I. ZUCKER, ESQ.
Self-storage facilities are “public accommodations” under the Americans with Disabilities Act. As such, facility operators are required to remove barriers to access when it is “readily achievable” to do so. Unfortunately, that term is hard to define, and it creates a risk for storage owners and operators when faced with properties where such barriers exist for disabled customers.
