How Fair Housing Rulings Should Impact Your Daily Operations and Handling of Complaints

Many fair housing issues create confusion, as rumors about complaints start and misinformation spreads. Shoppers and testers can contact properties via telephone and property visits, and many complaints are subsequently filed. Who wants to be the one that gets the company involved in costly legal battles? What once seemed like standard practices are being questioned and challenged today. Common sense and fair housing should be in sync, but it isn’t always clear!

Fair housing rulings on criminal background checks, English language proficiency requirements, violence against women and sexual harassment create all kinds of risks, concerns and questions. Add to that the confusion over assistance and service animals, and how to handle hoarding and marijuana usage, and you have an even greater need for clear answers.

Join this webinar with expert speaker Anne Sadovsky to learn more about the newest rulings, how they impact your daily operations, and how to prevent costly complaints. Anne will provide much-needed clarity on fair housing rulings and laws, helping you deal more effectively with residents when issues arise around either the new rulings or older ones like occupancy standards. She’ll help you assess your current policies and identify when they are outdated or even illegal. Get your burning questions answered at the end of this session, and be prepared by continuing your education!
