The purpose of fair housing laws and rules is to prevent discrimination of people on the basis of a protected class during a property transaction. Federal, state and local regulations prohibits brokers, sellers, lenders, and insurers from adopting discriminatory policies against people in protected classes.
Oregon’s House Bill 2703 was enacted to ensure Oregon real estate licensees learn about state and federal fair housing laws as part the continuing education requirement to renew an active license or reactivate a license. The new requirement becomes effective July 1, 2022.
The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability. In addition to the federal protected classes, the state of Oregon has included additional protected classes, and many local governments have included even more.
This Oregon real estate course consists of timed video presentations and online reading materials. This course does not contain a final exam. A continuing education course completion certificate usable towards Oregon REA continuing education requirements will be issued after completing the course and its mandated seat time.
This course will remain available to students for 730 days after enrollment.
