Categories: Physical Disability, Rental
Tags: fee reversal, lease

Pamela Groth contacted the Fair Housing Center in November 2020. Ms. Groth, who lives with a physical disability, asked to be let out of her lease without a penalty so she could move to an accessible apartment. Garden Court Apartments insisted that she pay the equivalent of two months’ rent to end her lease early. FHC Cooperating Attorney Daniel Gwinn filed the lawsuit on behalf of Ms. Groth. The suit was settled for an undisclosed amount in December 2020.
