Disability protections are among the most complex and confusing components of all fair housing laws. It is also consistently the most frequently cited as violated nationwide, year over year.
A key to understanding reasonable accommodations and modifications is the verification process and, importantly, who can do the verifying.
In this session we’ll quickly review the basics of the Fair Housing Act (FHA). We’ll review reasonable accommodations and modifications; including the use of disability-related aid animals as a prevalent example of an accommodation. This will include important distinctions between service and assistance animals, along with other, ubiquitous terms such as emotional support animals.
As we go, we’ll look at guidance from the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on who can verify various requests; including HUD’s latest and long-anticipated guidance on aid animals released in Jan. 2020.
This webinar will also discuss state legislation and jurisdictions’ attempts to provide clarity prior to HUD’s most recent guidance as it relates specifically to issues of verification. There are potential legal landmines for housing providers here that you must be aware of!
