A Fair Housing Review of House Rules, Occupancy Standards, and Screening Criteria

Are Your House Rules and Occupancy Standards Fair?

Fair Housing regulations treat policies like House Rules and Tenant Selection Plans with great scrutiny. The Fair Housing Act prohibits policies from including discriminatory terms and conditions.  However, the interpretation of what is discriminatory often requires a considerable amount of clarification, especially when it comes to rules regarding personal conduct.

Good Intentions or Fair Housing Discrimination?

Most housing providers create policies to create a better environment for all residents.  This can include rules about what residents can do in common areas, and how they are to maintain their homes. Many times policies are created with the best of intentions but viewed under a different light, they can be considered discriminatory.

Rules of conduct are a vital part of property management. They can be used to ensure proper housekeeping standards and reduce excess noise, and keep the property a clean and safe place for all. However, it is even more important to ensure that these cannot be considered discriminatory against any protected classes under the Fair Housing Act.
