Access is Required –
For Older Properties – Every retail business and commercial property is required by law to remove barriers that prevent access into and through the facility, when removal can easily be made.
For Newer Properties – Properties built after January 26, 1993 – The ADA states discrimination includes a failure to design and construct facilities that are accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

Expert CASp Inspection and CASp Reports
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!
CASp Experts is trusted by these fine companies.
The CASp Report –
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.
Questions? Should you or your contractor ever have any questions about the details of our CASp Inspection Report, the direct phone number to our CASp inspector is provided on every page of the CASp report. (818) 391-2570

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.

What is CASp and how does it benefit my business?
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.
