Fair Housing Program
As HUD considers removing anti-discrimination language from its mission statement, NAR affirms that REALTORS® believe fair housing for all should remain a core part of HUD’s mission.
Home sales and contract signings are down as affordability becomes a problem for more people.
NAR backs a bill to give property owners a chance to correct accessibility issues before going to court. The bill passed the House on Feb. 15, 2018. Ian Roach, NAR Federal Policy Analyst, explains the details.
The House of Representatives voted to pass HR 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act, by a vote of 225-192.
Both the House and Senate are in session this week. What issues should REALTORS® follow? ADA reform; Blockchain technology applications; and Data security/breach notification standards.
