Fred Jacoby, vice chairman, and Meridith Moldenhauer, a member in the firm's Real Estate Group, will present the webinar "The Fair Housing Act and Accessible Multifamily Housing" on September 23. This webinar will provide participants with an in-depth look at the inter-relationship between the federal Fair Housing Act’s prohibition against discrimination on the basis of disability in the design and construction of multifamily housing and the role of municipalities in enforcing basic construction standards. In addition, the webinar will address certain threshold questions relating to the application of the Fair Housing Act to the design of accessible multifamily housing projects — both for profit and not for profit.

The presenters will discuss:

  • FHA Compliance
  • Discrimination on the basis of a handicap
  • What constitutes new construction subject to the Fair Housing Act
  • “First Occupancy” in historical areas
  • The role of municipalities in enforcing basic construction standards and safety implications
