Handicap accessibility for condos?

Usually state law governs handicap accessibility in dwelling units.

Some condominiums, especially those built more recently, will have at least one handicap parking space and may also have a unit with wider hallways, doors and so forth for handicap-owner occupancy.

It may also be true that these access-centric assets have been sold to owners without a true need for them.

It's a good idea when looking for a unit to buy, that you understand the current situation within the association as to its accessibility-based ownership.

The state law may determine that if you -- as a handicapped individual -- are interested in buying handicap-centric assets within the community, that the association must accommodate you. Then, again, it may not.

If you already own a unit and become handicapped, you can work with your board to modify the interior of your unit to accommodate your needs. Then, you can also work with the board to swap or otherwise acquire the designated handicap parking space, or develop a space that you can use easily.
