In 2021, the California legislation passed a requirement for all real estate licenses to participate in a Fair Housing course that covers state and federal fair housing regulations. Besides explaining fair housing laws relating to the sale and rental of real estate, the course is required to include an interactive participatory component where the licensee shall role play as both a consumer and real estate professional.
This course will describe selected federal and state civil rights and antidiscrimination laws relating to real property transactions and business establishments. We'll cover the historical impact of fair housing regulations on minority members of our community, describe the primary laws regulating licensee conduct and real estate transactions, and review relevant subtopics including redlining, advertising, refusing to show property, and block busting. We'll also offer practical tips that can help all real estate professionals comply with fair housing laws.
Throughout the course you will be presented with scenarios that place the reader in the role of a consumer of real estate or in the role of a real estate professional. Several responses to the story will be presented. These scenarios are NOT graded activities; their purpose is for the reader to recognize everyday practices and experiences that they may not have considered to be discriminatory.
This course has no prerequisites.
Course fees consist of the initial enrollment fee. There are no additional fees charged to students.
