SH Guide to Fair Housing & ADA Compliance

The American Seniors Housing Association (ASHA) has released a wholly revised, fifth edition of Seniors Housing Guide to Fair Housing and ADA Compliance. This 50-page resource for owners and operators was prepared for ASHA by Paul Gordon, Esq., of the San Francisco, CA-based law firm Hanson Bridgett.   

According to ASHA’s president, David Schless, the updated and expanded Guide to Fair Housing and ADA Compliance “is part of ASHA’s long-standing effort to provide the industry with timely information about evolving issues regarding fair housing and ADA rules, court decisions and interpretations.”  

Since publication of the previous edition of the Guide, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and other fair housing enforcement agencies and advocacy groups have stepped up the level of challenges directly targeting seniors housing properties for allegations of disability discrimination.  

The Seniors Housing Guide to Fair Housing and ADA Compliance covers a wide range of pertinent topics for owners and operators, including: The Fair Housing Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, managing seniors housing discrimination issues, advertising, occupancy criteria, access to facilities and services, and much more.  

Copies of the new Guide to Fair Housing and ADA Compliance can be purchased from ASHA’s Bookstore.
