Although it seems like HUD and DOJ have not been focused on fair housing lately, the advocacy community appears to be working overtime in finding new and creative ways to challenge and interpret the FHA, making the multifamily industry even more hazardous for those not constantly monitoring the latest in fair housing compliance topics. Along with the perennial favorite topics of ESA and Occupancy standards, we’ll look at best practices for Resident Background Screening, working with Non-English speaking customers, the expanding definition of the protected class of Sex and examine how the theory of Disparate Impact is being applied in these areas and more.

Areas Covered

  1. Assistive Animals: Service and ESA/Companion/Therapy
  2. Occupancy Standards
  3. Criminal Background Checks
  4. Sex (Gender/LGBTQ) Discrimination
  5. Limited English Proficiency (LEP)

Learning Objectives

  • Ensure awareness of current Fair Housing issues and suggested strategies for effective compliance.
  • Create policies, forms and workflows that support compliance with fair housing laws.
  • Enable compliance with the expanded definition of sex for fair housing.
  • Understand how LEP applies to market-rate communities.
  • Learn how to comply with current HUD theory about occupancy standards.

Bonus Handout: We will provide a PDF workbook with content and links to useful resources including access to HUD/DOJ guidance memos and sample form templates
