To Request a Reasonable Accommodation in Writing
This reasonable accommodation request may be filled out either by the person who is asking for the accommodation themselves, or may be filled out by a friend, family member, real estate agent or other person assisting the individual who is requesting the accommodation.
(Note: Neither state nor federal law requires the reasonable accommodation request be in writing, however, it may be helpful to all parties to have the request in writing so everyone is clear what the accommodation is that is being requested.)
