Do Landlords Have to Install or Fix Elevators?
There are no federal laws requiring a landlord to provide an elevator, but the American Disabilities Act has strict guidelines about maintaining existing elevators with accessible features. Also, if an elevator is provided, landlords are required to maintain any elevators in a safe condition and follow any local regulations about its safety. People with disabilities may be able to require the landlord the landlord to provide a working elevator where the cost to do so is not prohibitive.
