|Duration: 60 minutes||Speaker: Paul Flogstad|
Are you a property manager, landlord, or tenant who wants to learn more about reasonable accommodations and fair housing? This webinar will provide an overview of the rights and responsibilities under the Fair Housing Act, specifically in relation to reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities.
A reasonable accommodation is one of fair housing’s “hot topics”. This typically accounts for over 50% of the fair housing complaints to HUD in the past year. Reasonable accommodations can be requested during the application process, during the tenancy and during an eviction. It is important to learn the correct procedure to ask for, review, and implement this important action. Reasonable accommodations are requested because of a disability of either physical or mental issues. It is important that one understand the definition of disability and when it comes into play to allow a disabled person to enjoy the same quality of life as a non-disabled individual.
This course will provide you with the ability to make the correct decision when faced with a reasonable accommodation request. Typically, property owners do not want to be charged by HUD for a fair housing violation and the costs incurred by the complaint. This course will give guidance to avoid being charged in the first place.
This will be a real-world course. It is just not textbook answers but solutions and examples of what is “real world”. The instructor has much fair housing experience and will share actual experiences to enhance learning.
