Fair Housing vs. Unfair Housing

Do you know the difference?

Knowing the difference between fair housing and unfair housing isn't as obvious as you might think. This blog aims to present a variety of important and interesting fair housing issues.

If you're an apartment professional, avoid costly mistakes by reading the stories of others who — even with good intentions — learned compliance lessons the hard way. (For the easy way, click here.)

If you live in an apartment, get familiar with your rights when it comes to housing discrimination, as well as your options for seeking justice.

Fair Housing Month: Baltimore Boot Camp Offers Training and Information Exchange

Baltimore Neighborhoods, Inc. (BNI) plans to honor Fair Housing Month with a free "Rental Fair Housing Boot Camp" a week from this Tuesday morning, April 20, at the Baltimore City War Memorial Building. The event, hosted in partnership with several government agencies, aims to keep property managers, fair housing advocates, and other industry professionals current by reviewing fair housing laws as well as topics such as how to file a complaint, common fair housing violations and how to avoid them, popular fair housing misconceptions, and more.

The presentation, which will feature a range of speakers from the public and private sector, will conclude with a "Resource Fair," in which attendees will have the opportunity to exchange materials they own related to fair housing, housing advocacy or programs, tenant and landlord services, and social services.

For more information about the Boot Camp, including a schedule and registration, visit BNI's Events page. Note the registration deadline is this Wednesday, April 14.

Return tomorrow for the eleventh part of this special "Fair Housing Month" feature at Fairhousingblog.com.
