Ronald L. Perl, Esq., CCAL, partner-in-charge of Hill Wallack’s Community Associations Practice Group, will be speaking at this year’s CAI-Pennsylvania/Delaware Valley Conference & Expo on Thursday, May 9, 2019, at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, PA.
Ron’s educational program, “Expanded Fair Housing Liability for Associations – Exposure for the Illegal Acts of Residents,” will take place from 9:45 A.M. to 10:45 A.M. The program description is as follows:
Most community association boards and managers know that the Federal Civil Rights Act prohibits housing discrimination and that the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 added handicap and familial status to the groups protected by the law. Less well-known is the fact that in 2016, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) enacted regulations which expanded the scope of community associations’ liability for housing discrimination. The regulations establish potential liability for associations based on the discriminatory actions of residents over whom the association has no direct control. This session will discuss these regulations and why associations now must be actively involved in addressing resident vs. resident discriminatory conduct.
Hill Wallack’s Community Associations Practice Group will also be exhibiting during the show, which runs from 10:45 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., so stop by to talk to our attorneys and drop your business card for a chance to win our giveaway.
