DESCRIPTION: Learning how to take a proactive role in preventing fair housing violations will reduce a real estate licensee’s exposure to liability. Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Fair Housing Act), as amended, prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status (including children under the age of 18 living with parents, or legal custodians, pregnant women, and people securing custody of children under the age of 18), and disability. A real estate licensee’s awareness of federal fair housing laws and sensitivity to consumer diversity is vital to business success, reputation, and growth. Licensees will learn why it is necessary to understand fair housing laws and the impact that both fair housing and diversity have on their business.

- Apply definitions of the seven protected classes and their exemptions to daily business encounters.
- Demonstrate behavior compliant with federal fair housing and related laws (including ADA).
- Compare obligations of the Realtor® Code of Ethics and REALTOR® Fair Housing Declaration to the requirements of the Fair Housing Act.
- Apply an understanding of HUD’s complaint and penalty process regarding fair housing violations.
- Demonstrate person first behavior in the context of diversity.
- Construct a niche marketing plan that reflects an awareness of and sensitivity to diversity
