Fair Housing 101 – Part II: Fair Lending & Consumer Protection
August 19, 2:00 pm EDT - 3:30 pm EDT
In Part II of this webinar series, we will build on your fair housing knowledge by reviewing lending and consumer laws that impact your daily interaction with clients. We will discuss the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, Community Reinvestment Act, Truth in Lending Act, and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act. Learn how to use these laws as tools to identify fair lending violations and protect your clients from predatory lending. Housing Counselors will work on recognizing lender and/or real estate practices that have a disparate impact on clients through documentation review.
You will learn:
- Best practices to assess cases and utilize knowledge of fair lending in protecting consumer rights
- How to evaluate cases for potential discriminatory conduct
- Strategies in providing guidance to clients with potential fair lending violations
