Disability Accommodation Rights for Owners & Occupants

The New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR) enforces the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD), which makes it illegal for those involved in the ownership, operation, or management of condominiums or cooperatives (e.g., landlords, sellers, condominium associations or boards, cooperative associations or boards, homeowners’ associations or boards) to discriminate against someone with a disability. Examples of Illegal Conduct • Discriminating against a prospective or actual buyer, renter, owner, or occupant because of that person’s disability or because of the disability of someone associated with that person. • Refusing to make reasonable accommodations to the rules, policies, practices, or services, when such accommodations would give someone with a disability an equal opportunity to use and enjoy the property, including public and common areas.
