Learn how to avoid violations!

This class is designed to go a step further than the brief seminars others offer, because this full day will cover not just the basic dos and don’ts, but also the specific details of each law and how to look at each policy, practice and procedure at your housing community with a Fair Housing eye.

What the Class will Cover:

✓The basic concepts of Fair Housing: who is protected under federal law, how Illinois laws impact this, and how Section Eight and other programs complicate this.

✓How to treat Assistance Animals in land lease communities and who is eligible to bring one on the property.

✓What the requirements are under the Americans with Disabilities Act for both prospective and current residents.

✓What the Fair Housing requirements are when advertising your community.

✓How to handle Reasonable Accommodation/ Modification requests.

✓What questions you can ask—and shouldn’t ask—to comply with Fair Housing laws.

✓How to deal with the new rules regarding criminal background checks and what to do about them.

✓How to deal with certain protected classes that make the claim that their poor credit cannot be held against them.

✓What to do when a prospective resident claims they are unable to fill out forms because they are illiterate.

✓Much more. There will be extensive role playing and in-class testing.
