Title II outlines regulations for any public entity.A public entity is any activity, service, program or facility owned by any governmental agency.Title III regulates places of public accommodation, commercial facilities and private companies that offer courses and examinations related to educational and occupational certification
The ADA does not affect any type of residential dwelling, such as a private residence, an apartment complex, a condominium, or a homeowner’s association.However, if any of these residential facilities operate an element of public accommodation within their premises, these elements would be subject to ADA regulations.Some examples are:
If any residential entity strictly limits use of their facilities to residents and their guests, they would not be subject to ADA regulations. Although residential facilities are not required to comply with ADA regulations for swimming pools, they must comply with the Fair Housing ACT. Under this legislation, a privately owned residential community must provide a barrier fee pathway up the ht edge of a pool.In additions, they cannot prevent a resident from using their own apparatus to gain access to the pool, providing it does not profit a hazard for other resident.
Private clubs are also excluded from ADA regulations in some cases.Final determination would be based on the control of operations, membership requirements, and the amount of fees involved.Operations that have a limited or no membership requirement and minimum dues charges do not fall under the private club exclusion.If a private club limit use of their facilities strictly to members and their guests, then the club would not be subject to ADA regulations.
