Multi-family communities must allow families with children per federal law, unless they fall into a very narrow exception. You should already know that “no kids,” “no teenagers,” and “no toddlers” policies will land you in legal jeopardy, but there’s much more you should know about occupancy standards and community rules!

Are you completely familiar and fully compliant with the familial status protection under the Fair Housing Act (FHA)?

Rules, procedures, and policies that aren’t in line with the law could be a liability that could cost individual staff members as well as the company and property owner big time!

Join this webinar to brush up on the law and learn how to protect your interests.

Our expert speaker we’ll dive into the nuances of familial status protections under the Fair Housing Act, including the most common violations, to assure your community is in compliance with federal law.

Webinar Objectives


In this session we’ll cover the ins and outs of familial status protection, including such detailed nuisances as:

  • Admission policies based on age – a big no-no!
  • Community rules that target kids under 18 – another no-no!

Cautionary tales, best practices, and case law relevant to multifamily housing will be included throughout.
