2020 Mandatory--Fair Housing and Cultural Diversity

Overview

This course lays the foundation for what real estate licensees should already know about federally protected classes as well as Louisiana state and federal laws pertaining to fair housing. It examines two very often misunderstood fair housing concepts--disparate impact and emotional support and service animals--and how these affect property management in real estate. The course concludes with a discussion of cultural diversity and bias in real estate and how licensees can learn to be true real estate professionals in every aspect of their professional lives.

This course meets the four-hour LREC mandatory course requirement for 2020.
