Housing discrimination complaints may be filed for up to one year after the discriminatory housing practice occurs or ends. However, it is best to file your complaint as soon as possible. After the filling of the complaint, HUD will investigate your claim. During this webinar by Paul FLogstad, you will learn the entire procedure in-depth and will learn how HUD will try to conciliate the claim before it goes to a final hearing.

Some of the penalties that HUD may instate if you are found guilty of discrimination include: To pay you money for actual damages, including out of pocket expenses, humiliation, and suffering caused by the discrimination. Actual damages mean money to compensate you for any injury you suffered as a result of the discrimination, including emotional distress; provide injunctive or other equitable relief—such as allowing you to rent or buy the dwelling; pay the federal government a civil penalty; and pay your attorney fees and costs, if you hired your own attorney. 

Attending this important webinar, you will learn all the strategies of the complaint and what you can do to avoid a complaint in the first place.

Webinar Objectives

The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status (families with children under 18), or disability. This webinar will guide you on how to file a discrimination complaint with HUD.
