A person with a physical disability shall be permitted to terminate a rental lease relative to such person's primary residence without incurring penalties or being obligated to pay rent after ceasing to occupy the property if such person is accepted as a resident of a public housing facility, unless the person's current landlord has made significant modifications to the residence to address issues of accessibility for persons with a physical disability.  The person with a physical disability who terminates a rental lease pursuant to this section shall present written evidence of the public housing facility acceptance to the rental leaseholder and the rental leaseholder shall provide written acknowledgement of the lease termination to the lessee.  For the purposes of this section, a “person with a physical disability” means a person who meets the standard for being “permanently and totally disabled” under § 71-4-1102.
