Apollo Ada, a Division of Apollo Construction Services, Inc. (CSLB #974513) not only does Construction Related Accessibility Standards Compliance Act (CRASCA) reports for Title III facilities, we also perform “due diligence” ADA inspections for clients prior to making new acquisitions. Our reports are tailored to your client’s needs. As general contractors we are in a somewhat unique position to provide preliminary cost estimates within the same report.
We also understand the timeliness and completeness of an ADA CASp report.
SB1186, effective July 1, 2013 required a commercial property owner to state on a lease form or rental agreement to state whether a facility has undergone inspection by a certified access specialist.
This was strengthened greatly by AB 2093, in part requiring commercial property owners to 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 (CASp) for compliance with construction-related accessibility standards. If it has, and there have been no alterations affecting accessibility since, the owner must provide the prospective tenant a copy of the CASp report at least 48 hours prior to the execution of the lease or rental agreement. Any necessary repairs are deemed the responsibility of the owner unless the landlord and tenant contractually agree otherwise. If the CASp report indicates the property meets applicable accessibility standards, the owner must provide the report and CASp certificate to the tenant within seven days of the execution of the lease or rental agreement. If the property has not been CASp-inspected, the owner must include specific language in the lease or rental agreement notifying the prospective tenant that: (a) a CASp can inspect the property and determine whether the property complies with construction-related accessibility standards; (b) a CASp inspection is not required by law; (c) the owner may not prohibit the tenant from obtaining a CASp inspection of the property; and (d) the owner and tenant shall mutually agree on the terms of the CASp inspection, including time, payment of fees, and allocation of responsibility for making any required corrections to accessibility violations identified in the CASp report.
With these legislative time frames in mind, Apollo ADA has a normal turnaround time of 7-10 business days so as not to delay any agreements. When necessary, Apollo ADA has completed their inspection report within a 24 hour time frame.
