“It is unlawful to refuse a person with a disability permission to make reasonable modifications to the premises at his/her own expense if such modifications are necessary to allow full use of the premises. In certain circumstances, the landlord may grant permission for a modification subject to an agreement that the renter will make reasonable restorations to the interior of the unit to its original condition before terminating occupancy (The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988).” If they view the handrail and stair case as necessities to operate without hindrance, they can be installed at their own expense.
