Under the Fair Housing Act, a reasonable change is a structural change to existing premises occupied or intended to be occupied by a person with a disability to allow that person to fully enjoy the premises. Reasonable changes may include structural changes to dwellings and exteriors, as well as to common and public areas. Examples include installing a ramp in a building, lowering the entrance threshold of a unit, or installing grab bars in a bathroom. Under the Fair Housing Act, prohibited discrimination includes refusing to allow, at the expense of the person with a disability, reasonable alterations to existing premises occupied or to be occupied by the person with a disability where such alterations are necessary to enable the person to fully enjoy the premises. Similar and based on the reasonable accommodation requirement of Section 504, Titles II and III of the ADA require public facilities and public accommodations to make reasonable changes to policies, practices, or procedures to avoid discrimination. This obligation applies unless the public body can demonstrate that the changes would fundamentally change the nature of its service, program or activity (Title II), or the public housing can demonstrate that the change would fundamentally change the nature of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, benefits or housing (Title III).

A supplier has the right to obtain the information necessary to assess whether a reasonable adjustment or modification requested may be necessary because of a disability. If a person`s disability is obvious, easily recognisable or otherwise known to the supplier and the need for the desired adjustment or change is also easily apparent or known, the supplier may not request additional information.
If the disability and/or disability-related need for the requested accommodation or change is not known or obvious, the provider may only request the information necessary to assess the disability and/or disability-related need for accommodation. This information may come from the person making the request, a health professional, a peer support group, a non-medical service organization, or a trusted third party who is able to know the person`s disability. In most cases, a person`s medical records or detailed information about the nature of their disability are not required for this examination and may be inappropriate. A contract amendment can be made in writing or orally, with some exceptions. An oral amendment is not enforceable if the contract provides that the changes must be made in writing (United States ex rel. Crane Co. v. Progressive Enterprises, Inc., 418 F. Supp. 662 [E.D. Va.
1976]). Generally, a change must be made in writing if it increases or decreases the value of the contract by $500 or more. (5) For an amendment that confirms the prior determination of the amount due for the performance of a termination of the contract by the terminating customer, the effective date is the effective date of the previous determination letter. (iii) any other unilateral amendment to the contract made under a contractual term authorizing such amendment without the consent of the contractor; MODIFICATION. A change; as a modification of a contract. This can be done at the time of conclusion of the contract by a condition that has this effect; For example, if I sell you a thousand bushels of corn, provided that each crop produces as much and produces only eight hundred bushels, the contract is changed, it is for eight hundred bushels and nothing more. 2. It may be amended with the consent of both parties after it has been made. See 1 bouv. Inst.
No. 733. In the case of contracts between traders, it is not necessary for an amendment to be supported by consideration. Derived from Section 2, Section 209, of the Uniform Commercial Code, this rule is intended to respect the intention of trading partners without requiring the time-consuming technical details of consideration. (a) Only officials acting within the limits of their authority are authorized to amend contracts on behalf of the Government. Various federal statutes require housing providers to make reasonable accommodations and reasonable changes for people with disabilities. Federal non-discrimination laws that protect against discrimination on the basis of disability apply not only to tenants and applicants for housing with disabilities, but also to non-disabled buyers and tenants who live with or are associated with persons with disabilities. These laws also prohibit housing providers from denying residence to persons with disabilities or setting conditions of stay because they require reasonable accommodation or changes.
Parent topic: Federal Acquisition Regulation 43.000 Scope of the part. This Part prescribes policies and procedures for the preparation and processing of contract amendments for all types of contracts, including construction contracts and architect-engineer contracts. It shall not apply to: (a) orders for supplies or services which do not otherwise modify the terms of contracts or agreements (e.g. supply contracts under supply contracts of indefinite duration); or (b) amendments for extraordinary contractual relief (see subsection 50.1). Paragraph 43.1 – General 43.101 Definitions. As used in this Part, administrative change means a unilateral contractual amendment (see 43.103(b)) in writing that does not affect the substantive rights of the parties (for example, a change in paying agent or dates of use). Effective Date: 1. In the case of an application for amendment, an amending order or an administrative change, the effective date is the date on which the amendment, variation order or administrative change is issued. 2. For the purposes of a supplementary agreement, the date of entry into force shall be the date agreed by the Contracting Parties. (3) In the case of an amendment issued as confirmatory denunciation for reasons of governmental convenience, the date of entry into force of the confirmatory notification shall be the date of entry into force of the original notification.
(4) For an amendment that converts an information for default to an information for the convenience of the government, the effective date of the information for default is the same. (5) For an amendment that confirms the prior determination of the amount due for the performance of a termination of the contract by the terminating customer, the effective date is the effective date of the previous determination letter. 43.102 Policy. (a) Only officials acting within the limits of their authority are authorized to amend contracts on behalf of the Government. Other government personnel may not (1) make changes to the contract; (2) act in such a way that the contractor believes he has the power to bind the Government; or (3) instruct or encourage the Contractor to perform work that should be subject to an amendment to the Agreement. (b) Treaty amendments, including amendments that could be made unilaterally, shall be evaluated prior to their implementation if this is possible without prejudice to the interests of the Government. If a contract amendment is likely to result in a significant increase in costs and time does not permit price negotiations, at least a maximum price will be negotiated if this is not possible. 43,103 types of contract amendments. The amendments to the treaties are of the following nature: (a) Bilateral amendments.
A bilateral amendment (supplementary agreement) is a contractual amendment signed by the contractor and the client. Bilateral amendments are used to (1) make negotiated fair adjustments following the issuance of an amendment order; (2) define postal contracts; and (3) reflect other agreements between the parties that modify the terms of the agreement. (b) Unilateral. A unilateral amendment is a contract amendment signed solely by the customer. Unilateral changes are used, for example, to: (1) make administrative changes; (2) issue change orders; (3) make amendments authorized by clauses other than an amendment clause (e.g., ownership clause, option clause or suspension of work); and (4) issue terminations. 43.104 Notification of treaty changes. (a) If a contractor considers that the Government has made or may make an amendment to the Agreement which has not been identified as such in writing and signed by the Contracting Party, it shall notify the Government in writing as soon as practicable.
