As we celebrate the 55th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, let’s make certain that our compliance efforts are focused on what is really required as opposed to some widely accepted misconceptions of what fair housing compliance consists of.

Since the requirements of fair housing compliance change with the establishment of additional protected classes, court decisions and guidance issued by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Justice (DOJ), it is essential we know what is fact and what is fiction.

With the proliferation of social media sites, many unsuspecting multifamily professionals are posting questions and relying on answers posted by well-meaning individual who may not have the training, experience or knowledge to offer a factual response.

In addition, certain myths such as “Treat everyone the same”; “Two persons per bedroom will always be OK”; “Persons under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian” persist and continue to be the source of fair housing complaints and lawsuits.

This webinar will debunk those and other myths and will give participants some resources to be able to tell fact from fiction.
