This course looks at the history of fair housing and examines in depth the most pertinent legislation in force today. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 was the first major legislation that applied to residential housing. The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 broadened the coverage, increased the enforcement policies of the Act and stiffened the penalties invoked for violation of the Act. Specific advertising policies are investigated and illustrated. The procedure for filing a complaint of discrimination are studied in detail and there are lots of hints on how to stay clear of discriminatory practices in sales, rentals and financing of real estate.
1. A Historical Look at Fair Housing
2. Exemptions, Prohibited Actions, and Real-Life Court Cases
3. Handicaps and Familial Status
4. Advertising and the Fair Housing Enforcements
