Description: When you think of risk management for your rental business, fair housing training might not be top of mind, but it's critical.

  • A brief history and core principles of Fair Housing Law.
  • Protected classes in various jurisdictions, including source of income and criminal history. 
  • Key areas of landlord risk for fair housing claims in the tenancy lifecycle.
  • How to apply best practices and decision making in various landlord-tenant relation situations.

Instructor: Christopher Cutting is an experienced instructor who makes it easy for landlords to understand and apply legal principles in daily practice. As the principal of Cutting Law and owner of LT Services, he practices commercial and residential landlord-tenant litigation as well as appeals and judgment enforcement in Western Washington.
