Property Managers are on the front line of fair housing issues as it relates to renting and must be knowledgeable in how to operate their business to ensure compliance. This session is designed to be very practical and will also address current fair housing topics including service animals, reasonable accommodation requests, and disparate impact rules.
Let Me Tell You About the Man Cave: The Fair Housing Act for the Modern Real Estate Agent
The Fair Housing Act might not have changed in the last decade, but real estate agents and consumers have. This course looks at recent technological developments in the real estate industry and their interplay with the Fair Housing Act as well as recent cases involving real estate professionals.
The Fair Housing Act became law in the United States in 1968. Real estate licensees have been trying to balance the requirements of the law with the needs and wills of their clients since that time. Compliance with fair housing statutes has not changed, at least in theory; but fair housing complaints don’t happen theoretically. Complaints and the careers they are capable of destroying are quite real. With his unique perspective on fair housing law and application, Travis Everette works to help real estate professionals like you avoid the complaint crosshairs while not sacrificing the intent of the law. Expect lively discussions about current marketing techniques and strategies to lawfully satisfy the needs of clients. Get this meaningful and business-changing information whether you are involved in residential sales or rentals.
