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: Riverside County Celebrates Fair Housing Month the 'Fair' Way

Could there be a more fitting way to celebrate Fair Housing Month than with a fair?

The Fair Housing Council of Riverside County, Inc. is commemorating the Fair Housing Act (FHA) by hosting a Fair Housing Month Festival at its Riverside office, 3933 Mission Inn Ave., on Saturday, April 17. The event, which is open to the public, will offer free food, children's games, a fire engine, and booths with representatives from housing-related organizations.

Perhaps most enticing of all, however, is a free drawing for a prize worth $500 in rent plus one month's paid utility bills.

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