The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed by President Bush on 7/26/90, and became effective in 1992. Ever since, the entire country has been growing increasingly aware of the prevailing trend in anti-discrimination laws.
No individual shall be discriminated against on the basis of a disability in the full and equal enjoyment of the . . . goods, services or facilities . . . of any place or public accommodation.
ADA’s prohibitions against discrimination apply to “any person who owns, leases (or leases to), or operates a place of public accommodation,” that a landlord can be, and often is liable for noncompliance.
Buildings and facilities with construction, renovation or alteration costs of $50,000 or more, are required by statute to be submitted for review to either the Elimination of Architectural Barriers Department of TDLR, or to an Independent Contract Provider (ICP) under contract with the State.
