California Senate Bill 1186 goes into effect July 1, 2013, requiring all property owners or lessors to state in lease documents or rental agreements whether the property being leased has undergone a CASp inspection:

SEC. 12. Section 1938 added to the Civil Code:

1938. A commercial property owner or lessor shall state on every lease form or rental agreement executed on or after July 1, 2013, whether the property being leased or rented has undergone inspection by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp), and, if so, whether the property has or has not been determined to meet all applicable construction-related accessibility standards pursuant to Section 55.53.
