Special Needs Rental Agreement

Discrimination based on housing is an unfortunate reality for people with disabilities, especially those seeking their first rent. As a parent of an adult child with special needs, you are an ally in the fight for fair housing and your child`s rights under the FTA. Kathleen Mitchell`s 31-year-old son with Down syndrome thrives in an apartment complex designed for people with special intellectual needs. Rental credit agreements are sometimes used by people who apply for SSI. These rules apply only to ISS and do not apply to IDSS. In order to avoid ISM, families should draw up a written rental agreement covering the person`s proportional share in the running costs of the household and, where appropriate, in foodstuffs.
