Federal Law Provides Family Status Protections You Must Heed

Planned communities (including condos, coops, manufactured home parks, and subdivisions with homeowners associations) must allow families with children according to federal law. This is, unless your property falls into a very narrow exception. If your policies aren’t aligned with family status rules, expect liability that can cost your facility’s manager, board members, and each and every homeowner—big time.

Join housing pro Jo Becker in this webinar to learn how to compliantly handle families with children. Becker will discuss the details of federal familial status protection, including the correctness (or not) of: admission policies based on age, community rules that target kids under 18, and restrictive occupancy policies.

After attending this webinar, you’ll have a comprehensive understanding of the federal Fair Housing Act and its familial status protections. You’ll also know which common violations to avoid—that is, which rules are most likely to land you in trouble. And you’ll understand how to make compliant exceptions to the rules for older persons.

Kids in planned communities can be tricky. Learn how to get the resident mix you’re after without becoming snarled in a legal nightmare.
