always be sued by some disgruntled visitor in civil court. The business the visitor visited will most likely be party to the suit. If you can show good faith effort and reasonable upgrades you installed to bring as much of the building upto ADA code, you will win some brownie points with the judge.

One legal defense I have heard of is hiring a Certified Access Specialist to draw up a CASp report (details all the necessary upgrades to become compliant). If you get sued, I have heard that the courts will generally stay the lawsuit when presented with a valid CASp report and give you 12? months to complete the upgrades.
Another; I have heard in order to get permits to upgrade a building, ADA requirements must have been met. BUT. You can plead "Unreasonable Hardship" and limit the ADA upgrades you have to actually complete to 20% of your building improvement project budget with a cap of $130,000 for any one improvement project.

If you ask the right questions for example you are going to use the property in its existing condition and will not be pulling permits then the upgrades are not required.
All of the above is true. You are ok with the code officials, since you will be buying an existing building. Any updates/ upgrades you do will bring additional scrutiny. You do need to make "reasonable" upgrades to accomodate people with disabilities. What that is, depends on the code enforcers. There are code books and then there are code "interpretations" books: )

Elevator installs are unreasonable expense as I priced one for an office building in Tustin. The price range was $75,000 $125,000.
I have personally seen companies looking to purchase properties use there CASp inspection as a bargaining tool to reduce the purchase price of the property. From multimillion dollar business parks, and shopping centers to several hundred thousand dollar properties multi family housing.
