Closing Remarks by SVAA

Did you know that…
Everyone has the right to live wherever they choose as long as they qualify?
Housing providers are bound by the law to base all housing
decisions – including sales, rental, financing and any other
housing transactions – on objective criteria that ask for
information such as Job Status, Credit Worthiness and Criminal History
that is applied to all. The law prohibits decisions based on: race, color,
sex, religion, national origin, familial status, handicap and elderliness.

About the Course

•This is a three hour course teaching you about your legal rights & responsibilities under the Fair Housing Law
