WHY: Learning ​how ​to ​take ​a ​proactive ​role ​in ​preventing ​fair ​housing ​violations ​will ​reduce ​a ​real ​estate ​licensee's ​exposure ​to ​liability. ​ ​Title ​VIII ​of ​the ​Civil ​Rights ​Act ​of ​1968 ​( ​Fair ​Housing ​Act), ​as ​amended, ​prohibits ​discrimination ​in ​the ​sale, ​rental, ​sand ​and ​financing ​of ​dwellings, ​and ​in ​other ​housing-related ​transactions, ​based ​on ​r ​ace, ​color, ​national ​origin, ​religion, ​sex, ​familial ​status(including ​children ​under ​the ​age ​of ​18 ​living ​with ​parents, ​or ​legal ​custodians, ​pregnant ​women, ​and ​people ​securing ​custody ​of ​children ​under ​the ​age ​of ​18), ​and ​disability. ​ ​A ​real ​estate ​licensee's ​awareness ​of ​federal ​fair ​housing ​laws ​and ​sensitivity ​to ​consumer ​diversity ​is ​vital ​to ​business ​success, ​reputation, ​and ​growth. ​ ​Licensees ​will ​learn ​why ​it ​is ​necessary ​to ​understand ​fair ​housing ​laws ​and ​the ​impact ​that ​both ​fair ​housing ​and ​diversity ​have ​on ​their ​business.
