Reasonable Modification/Accommodation Disclosure Form Not Provided By NYS
On March 2, 2021 a new “Reasonable Modification and Accommodation” tenant disclosure and notice law for housing accommodations became effective under the NYS Human Rights Law. The law requires the NYS Division of Human Rights to develop regulations for the form and notice requirements prior to March 2, 2021.  
As of today, there are no regulations or form to comply with the disclosure and notice requirement law. As such, it is impossible for a real estate licensee to comply with the disclosure and notice requirement until such time as a disclosure and notice are provided by New York State. Read more.
