NOTICE TO ALL APPLICANTS AND/OR RESIDENTS OF RIGHT TO REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION AND MODIFICATION
GEM Management does not discriminate against applicants and/or residents based on mental and/or physical disabilities. Under Federal laws, persons with disabilities have a right to request reasonable accommodations to rules, policies, practices, services and modifications to apartment home interiors, exteriors or common areas so as to have an equal opportunity to use and enjoy the apartment community. These laws apply to residents and/or applicants, if you are disabled as defined under the Fair Housing Act.
If you have a disability and would like to request an accommodation and/or modification, it is encouraged that you submit a request in writing by completing a Request for Reasonable Accommodation and/or Modification Form. This will assure that your request is communicated clearly and concisely. This form can be obtained at the leasing office through your site manager. If you need help completing a Reasonable Accommodation and/or Modification Request Form, or if you would like to give us your request in some other way, management will assist you. All requests must include that you are requesting an accommodation and/or modification due to a disability, describe the accommodation and/or modification you are requesting and explain why the accommodation and/or modification is necessary because of your disability. You do not need to disclose any medical information or the nature or severity of your disability. We will just need to know why your request is necessary and related to your disability.
All information you provide will be kept confidential and used only to help you have an equal opportunity to enjoy your housing. Management will give you an answer in thirty (30) days, unless there is a problem getting information needed or you agree to a longer time. Management will notify you if more information or verification is needed and/or to discuss other ways to meet your needs. Such changes may not be reasonable if they are not financially and administratively feasible. Modifications and/or accommodations that are reasonable and do not constitute financial and administrative burdens may be paid by the apartment community. Residents and/or applicants may be required to pay for reasonable modifications if apartment community does not have federal funding.
If for any reason your request is not able to be met, management will explain the reasons and give you the opportunity to supply further information if you wish. Should you feel you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your site manager or email@example.com.
