All Americans have the right to attempt to purchase, rent, or finance housing for themselves in the location of their choosing, regardless of their gender, religion, handicap, color, race, national origin or familial status. To help ensure that no one is deprived of this right, Congress passed the federal Fair Housing Act in 1968. This Act prohibits unethical discrimination by those who rent, sell and finance residential real estate. This module discusses the federal Fair Housing Act, as well as other anti-discrimination laws that directly affect the real estate industry and the financing of real estate. Upon completion of this course, you will understand the legislation, its purpose, and importance. You will also be familiar with the penalties for violating such statutes and have a better understanding of how you can avoid unethical discrimination in your everyday conduct. This module concludes with a real estate practice lesson that will present you with various case studies. Using the information you have gained from this course, this final lesson provides you with an opportunity to decide how to handle the common predicaments that often face those providing brokerage services. Initially, this module will introduce the federal Fair Housing Act, explaining the groups of people whom it covers and the various wrongs against which the law is meant to protect those people. In addition, we will discuss the meaning of discrimination and the existence of certain exemptions to the law. After detailing the Fair Housing Act, this course will move on to other relevant statutes, such as the federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
