No it is not unlawful for an apartment complex to set aside a unit or several units as handicapped only and then they can simply wait until some family comes along that needs the unit due to one of them being in a wheelchair. In fact, apartment complexes are required to hold a certain number of units aside i the event that handicapped persons need a rental to live in. If the complex rented a handicapped unit to a non-handicapped person and then a month or two later, a handicapped person wanted to move into the complex, then the complex can be fined for not having the appropriate number of units set aside for handicapped persons.
