Hello. My name is Alex.
Thank you for your question.
I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, only buildings that are built on or after 1994 are required to be ADA accessible under the ADA, so unfortunatelly, if the rental company was located in the building that was built in 1969, there would generally not be any legal recourse.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
