Webinar: Fair Housing, Disability, and Reasonable Accommodations
Multifamily NW welcomes Shyle Ruder, Fair Housing Council of OR
It can be really challenging to understand what types of requests for reasonable accommodation are allowable under the Fair Housing Act (FHA). Come to this one-hour session where we will do a deep dive into the FHA’s definition of disability, reasonable accommodation, types of verification an applicant or tenant needs to provide with the request, and how to evaluate these requests. There will also be time for Q&A.
