Last month, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill 2093, which became effective immediately. This bill was passed and signed in an attempt to rein in the volume of predatory lawsuits which claim violations of accessibility laws like the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). The bill mandates that commercial property owners state on every lease or rental agreement executed after January 1, 2017, whether the property being leased or rented has been inspected by a California Certified Access Specialist for compliance with construction-related accessibility standards.
