The Fair Housing Act is a federal act in the United States intended to protect the buyer or renter of a dwelling from seller or landlord discrimination.

Over 60 per cent of fair housing complaints to HUD come from some sort of a maintenance issue. Maintenance staff have the most interaction with tenants and thereby have the most potential for a fair housing violation. It is imperative that your staff have the latest fair housing information in order to avoid a complaint.
