Event Description

Master the Fair Housing Basics Now to Avoid Legal Trouble Later

The federal Fair Housing Act (FHA) applies to all housing, including the planned community or homeowners association (HOA) that you live in or manage! So whether you are a professional community manager or an owner serving on the board of directors, you are liable for knowing and following fair housing laws—both personally and collectively.

Avoid fair housing issues by learning what it is—and what it isn’t—in this informative webinar by industry expert Jo Becker. Becker will discuss each of the 7 federally protected classes (race, color, national origin, religion, gender, familial status, and disability)—including stories and case law examples relevant to HOAs and other planned communities. She’ll also explain the importance of familiarizing yourself with local and state protections.

Becker will cover hot topics, cautionary tales, and best practice recommendations on fair housing issues relating to: neighbor-on-neighbor harassment; families with children and occupancy standards; reasonable accommodations and modifications for individuals with disabilities; and designated senior housing qualifications.

After attending this webinar, you will know the basics of what fair housing is (and what it isn’t), and what you can do to avoid legal jeopardy.
