I should have stated in original post regarding specific information regarding Maryland, sorry.

State of Maryland has an accessibility code which refers to the:

2010 Standards for Public Accommodations and Commercial Facilities: Title III

28 CFR part 36, subpart D — New Construction and Alterations

(IV) Accessible telephones;

At what point is an office space required to upgrade their bathroom to accessible?  For example, I have a current small house that was used as a reality company.  It is going to be divided in half to make two separate office tenants with one non handicap accessible bathroom in the common hallway. Would dividing this building into two separate occupancies require me to upgrade this bathroom? Or if I kept it as one occupancy and remodeled the bath would I have to bring it accessible standards?
