Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: Tenant rights in apartment in regards to Disabilities? My complex has been raising rents regularly. I just found out that they are going to charge 15 dollars a month for premium parking they do have a few handicap parking spaces but not many. Can I ask my landlord to give me disability parking near my apartment. She told me if there is no parking I have to park in the other lot which is far for me to walk with my oxygen tanks. Is there any laws to protect me. All she keeps saying is its open parking I live in a 55 senior apartment.
