Pot, Pit Bulls, Parking & Perps: Latest Fair Housing Pitfalls

On Demand

  • 60 minutes

The virus will eventually go away, but Fair Housing Compliance is here to stay.  Laws and Rulings change, not knowing current laws is no defense in a court of law. More and more often discrimination claims are filed regarding accommodating requests for reserved parking, allowing Bull and other ‘aggressive” breeds such as assistance animals, marijuana use, and how to handle and answer questions from persons who have been incarcerated. Ignorance of Fair Housing Laws is no excuse!  Staying on top of the latest cases, rulings and directives are critical; not doing so can create an expensive lesson.  Fair Housing classes don’t have to be dull...in fact, you might be excited to hear what is changing, and how it impacts you and your property. You will get your questions answered and your answers questioned. Don’t be the one who gets the owner sued!

Areas Covered:

  • Can residents smoke pot on your property? Does pot have the same rules as cigarettes? Can you make your residents stop smoking anything?

  • Aren’t pit bulls dangerous? Can they assist animals? A prospect has a parrot and claims that it is a service animal. Can a bird do that? What about obvious fake doctors' notes? A resident has a new puppy and when questioned says that it is her emotional support animal. I think that isn’t true. What can I do?

  • You are out of parking spaces. Do you have to let every disabled person have a reserved spot? What if other handicapped people park in a reserved spot? We have so many handicapped parking spaces that others can’t find a place to park? Is there a limit?

  • Your boss is concerned about using social media. Can we get sued if you say the wrong things?

  • Do we now have to rent to criminals?

  • Do I have to print all my documents in different languages? Who is responsible for translating if the prospective resident doesn’t speak English?

  • Can I evict a resident who keeps calling 911 because of her ex-spouse?

  • Residents are complaining about the smell of marijuana smoke coming from one particular apartment. We have asked the pot smoker about it and he denies it. What should we do?

  • The maintenance tech found a marijuana plant growing in a resident’s apartment. It’s just one little plant. Can we just ignore it?

  • A female resident says that one of our employees patted her on the bottom. He says they always hug when they say hello and she usually initiates the hug. Do we have a problem?
