Fair Housing Basics and Trends for Multi-Family Housing Providers

Presented by John Zimmerman, Miami Valley Fair Housing Opportunities

Wednesday, November 13, 2019
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM (EST)

Event Details

Fair Housing Basics and Trends for Multi-Family Housing Providers is a good class for beginners or seasoned professionals in the property management business. This class is certified for 3 hours of CAM through GDAA and for 3 CEU hours for Licensees with the Ohio Division of Real Estate through the Miami Valley Fair Housing Center. In addition to a review of fair housing basics, the course will focus on some of the important trends in fair housing. Since 60% of all fair housing complaints that are filed annually across the nation are based on disability, the class material will focus on how to serve people with disabilities in an inclusive manner and give pointers on how to avoid liability under fair housing laws. Other important parts of the course will give information on recent guidance from HUD on: 

  • Occupancy Standards and familial status protections
  • Advertising: word usage and best practices in marketing
  • compliance with the 2016 Anti-Harassment regulation including some best practices to deal with tenant-on-tenant harassment.   
  • The use of criminal History in screening


The Miami Valley Fair Housing Center provides assistance to victims of housing discrimination and provides education for professionals whose work intersects with the provision of housing.
