NAR Call for Action

NAR is currently conducting a Call for Action with our Commercial members in support of HR 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act.

This bipartisan bill adds a crucial “notice-and-cure” provision to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), giving business owners an opportunity to fix an alleged violation before costly legal proceedings are initiated.  Currently, attorneys around the country are taking advantage of the ADA’s lack of a notice requirement, filing lawsuits indiscriminately against commercial property owners, often for minor, easily corrected infractions.  The property owners must then either settle or use their time and money on legal proceedings – resources that could have instead gone to fixing the alleged violation.

HR 620 would restore the integrity of the ADA by curbing these abusive practices and incentivizing business owners to quickly correct ADA infractions.  For more information on this bill, see NAR’s issue summary on ADA Lawsuit Reform here.
