The Fair Housing Handbook

Expert Insights on Fair Housing Practices to Avoid Discrimination Claims!

Fair Housing is a right for all individuals and the HUD and DOJ are very particular about the enforcement of Fair Housing rights for all. However, over 27,000 complaints of housing discrimination are handled every year and FH violations can result in fines up to $10,000 for the first offence and $25000 for the second offence in a five year period and up to $50000 in a seven year period.

That’s not all, providers accused of discrimination may be required to pay not just the fines, but also compensatory and punitive damages as well as attorney’s fees. Remaining informed and updated about FH requirements and expected conduct is essential. However, navigating the tangle of Fair Housing regulations, and understanding how to avoid inadvertent discriminatory practices is easier said than done!

To that end, Assisted Housing Alert brings the Fair Housing Handbook in collaboration with industry veteran Paul Flogstad to help all stakeholders in assisted housing provide housing to all. The Fair Housing Handbook is your one-stop resource for ensuring your housing practices are compliant with Fair Housing laws.

This book explains, in simple terms, the various requirements under Fair Housing regulations, and will assist housing providers in making the application and screening process non-discriminatory and avoid discrimination claims.
