As part of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, the purpose of the Fair Housing Act is to provide for fair housing throughout the country without constitutional limitations. It was the first law of its kind, creating prohibitions against acts and practices in the industry that were discriminatory based on factors such as religion, race, color, national origin, sex, familial status, or handicap.

Students will learn about the established protected classes, and get an in-depth look at prohibitions created to protect those classes from discrimination in mortgage transactions. Students will also learn about procedures for investigating and resolving complaints of violations, as well as penalties that may result.
