Expert CASp Inspection and CASp Reports

Expert CASp Inspection CASp Experts provides CASp Inspection Reports of Commercial Properties to comply with both the ADA and California Title 24 access codes. Have you been threatened with an ADA lawsuit? We can help!

A CASp Inspection is also now required by law for Commercial Leases. Recent California legislation, AB 2093, now requires commercial property owners to state on every lease or rental agreement executed after January 1, 2017, whether the property has had a CASp Inspection Report by a California Certified Access Specialist (CASp) for compliance with construction-related accessibility standards!

The CASp Report –

 

CASp Inspection Reports - casp-experts.com Our CASp Inspection Reports are highly detailed, yet easy to understand. Your CASp report will clearly identify ADA barriers found at your facility and describe the barrier removal requirements needed to comply with the ADA and California Access laws.

 

A good CASp report will provide you with color photos, cite the codes for each violation found and provide highly descriptive recommendations for the corrections needed, but our CASp report goes even further – we also provide you with specific details and diagrams which illustrate the code requirements for those elements needing corrections. Having these extra details and diagrams help you or your contractor in making the corrections right the first time, saving you both time and money.

ADA vs. California Codes


When Codes Don’t Agree.  State and federal codes do not always agree and proper code compliance is needed to meet the minimum required standards. 
CASp Experts understands these code differences and can help you with the complex legal requirements of the ADA.

As an example, the ADA standard for an accessible Paper Towel Dispenser inside the accessible restroom states the dispenser cannot be higher than 48 inches to the highest operable part. The California code specifies a height not greater than 40 inches for the same dispenser and In this instance, you could be compliant with the ADA at a height of 44″ and still be non-compliant for the California code and be subject to legal action because it does not meet California’s more restrictive code.

Why is California tougher on ADA elements? You would probably be surprised to know that California created accessibility codes years ahead of the ADA.

Understanding ADA Lawsuits

California has a higher standard for accessibility due to the UNRUH Act which uses the term “any discrimination or distinction”.  With California’s legal climate for ADA lawsuits, it’s imperative that this higher standard be understood.  At CASp Experts we understand these higher standards and are well informed of new access issues which have surfaced from recent legal challenges.
We truly are the
CASp Experts.

CASp F.A.Q.’s

What is CASp and how does it benefit my business?
California created the CERTIFIED ACCESS SPECIALIST program (CASp) to test the knowledge of and certify ADA Access Compliance inspectors. CASp is specific to California law only. Jon Rose, Principal at CASp Experts is Licensed by the state of California as CASp #204. You can get your CASp report after completing a CASp Experts inspection. The CASp report entitles the business owner to a 90 day stay or a temporary halting of any pending litigation which prevents attorneys from engaging in motions, discovery or other activities that compound legal fees.

For example, if a lawsuit brought against your business is based on an alleged violation that would be easy for the business or property owner to fix, the parties will be able to have an Early Evaluation conference, administered by the state court, to determine whether the litigation can be settled without costly court appearances. Without the possession of a CASp report prior to a lawsuit, the business or property owner could be faced with standard court rules, expensive legal fees and time consuming obligations.

Why do I need to worry about ADA code compliance?
The main benefit of being ADA compliant is it will decrease the risk of lawsuits against your business. Being proactive about changes for ADA compliance can save you money. Unfortunately, people seem to be more litigious than ever and its not difficult to file time consuming & costly lawsuits for minor violations. Also, its just good business practice. If customers can’t easily get to you, they just won’t buy from you.
Is there a difference between State and Federal Laws?
Yes, there is a difference between state and Federal ADA laws. With variations between them, you can be in compliance Federally and still be sued for noncompliance with state codes. This is why it is best to have a CASp inspection report to work from.
Who is responsible for fixing the handrails and bathrooms in my building?
The owner of the building is generally responsible for the exterior ADA compliance. And generally, the owner of the business is responsible for the interior ADA compliance. There are some exceptions to this that we’d be happy to discuss with you. If the building owner is ignoring the need for exterior accessible upgrades, the business owner can make sure they are held harmless against any legal actions brought against the building owner for non-compliance of ADA laws.
What is the process like when working with CASp Experts?
Call us at (818) 391-2570 to get started. We’ll gather all the necessary information and find a date to inspect the exterior and interior of your building. A team of our accessibility consultants will arrive at your property to perform the inspection. Our detailed report will be emailed to you, usually within 1 week of our inspection.

Our reports are highly detailed and we are happy to answer questions about your CASp report. We can also provide contractor recommendations from our growing list of qualified ADA contractors in areas such as asphalt, concrete, handrails and interior work.
