Sample Reasonable Accommodation Denial Letter

When a person’s disabilities prevent them from using or enjoying their housing in the same way as people without disabilities, they can ask for reasonable changes in their housing. This letter template can be filled out and sent to the landlord if they have denied your written request for a reasonable accommodation. Or you can use it as a model to write your own letter. You should keep a copy of the letters that you send. Learn more on this page of our website.

Re: Request for Hearing or Meeting

To Whom It May Concern:

I don't agree with your decision denying my reasonable accommodation request. I want to have a hearing or meeting with you. Please tell me what information you need me to give you for you to agree to the changes I need to accommodate my disability.
