Collection: Fair Housing and Reasonable Accommodation

Purpose

Our Fair Housing and Reasonable Accommodation seminar has been completely revamped to give you expanded and updated content. The book is fully cited with statutes, HUD regulations, PIH notices, and HUD and Department of Justice (DOJ) guidance and makes an excellent reference document for your office.

Topics addressed in the class include:

  • Understanding the reasonable accommodation process
