Calif. Civil Code §1938
Amended by A. B. 1148
Effective date: July 21, 2017
This law clarifies that only owners of commercial properties which are intended to operate as places of public accommodation, or facilities open to the general public, need to disclose on the lease form or rental agreement whether the subject property has been inspected by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp).
Editor’s note — A Certified Access Specialist (CASp) is an inspector who may determine whether a property complies with all state accessibility standards.
This clarification prevents private access commercial properties, such as self-storage properties, from being burdened with disclosure requirements that are not applicable to their use.
