Fair Housing

No landlord can be effective at tenant screening without a thorough knowledge of Fair Housing laws.  While we do not cover fair housing issues here, there are numerous Internet resources you can use to educate yourself.  Here are a few:

U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

Americans With Disabilities Act

Illinois Fair Housing Initiative

National Fair Housing Advocate Online

It is very easy to run afoul of the law.  Don't risk your investment - ignorance of the law is no excuse!
