Fair housing refers to the right of all people to be free from discrimination in the rental, sale or financing of housing. Over 60 per cent of fair housing complaints to HUD come from some sort of a maintenance issue. Maintenance staff have the most interaction with tenants and thereby have the most potential for a fair housing violation.
In this session, expert speaker Paul Flogstad will cover all aspects of fair housing for maintenance personnel. The topics that will be covered in the session include assistive animals, steering, disability, reasonable accommodation, reasonable modification, as well as numerous tips on proper procedures. Paul will discuss the ADA (Americans with Disability Act) and the modifications to it. The goal of this session is to keep maintenance staff in compliance with HUD laws on fair housing.
