Fair housing is a complicated and constantly evolving area of the law. We are actively available via telephone and email to discuss our client’s recent and pressing issues. Because we practice almost exclusively in this area of the law, we carefully follow all matters involved with the civil rights requirements of housing providers. It is seldom necessary to conduct research and most questions can be answered immediately. Due to our long-standing, close professional relationships with our clients, we are able to listen to our clients’ challenges and provide objective suggestions and alternatives when appropriate. After being in business representing housing providers for more than twenty-four years, we have achieved a level of expertise and understanding of the benefits and risks of most considerations, making our Firm a valued member of your team.
A housing provider’s successful fair housing performance often depends upon effective policy development, training its employees on these policies, and follow up supervision practices to ensure employees are complying with the policies. Our attorneys have been working together with our Firm’s clients to understand which policies are essential, and how those policies should be expressed.
Efficient housing management oftentimes requires the use of effective forms. Due to its long professional relationship with so many housing provider clients, our Firm is able to work with you to create forms that capture necessary information that will enable the housing provider to make determinations that address its residents’ concerns while documenting compliance with all applicable fair housing concerns. These forms include applications, screening policies, releases, reasonable accommodation requests, and verification forms, follow up verification forms, determination of whether a modification creates an undue administrative and financial burden or a fundamental alteration, accessibility checklists, and many more.
