All About Fair Housing - Animals!

You finally finish the rehab and hurrah - it's finally ready for rent!  The 2nd R of the BRRRR strategy... 
There's specific laws in place to ensure you are leasing your property without any bias or prejudices. 
Like it or not - we all have them and we have to ensure our screening and selection 
process of potential residents is not only legal - but fair! 
PLUS we'll get the latest on the Alphabet soup of animals - not pets: ESA / TA / SA ... !? 

Our featured speaker this month is Valerie Watson, the Fair Housing Manager for the Stark County Regional Planning Commission, Stark County Fair Housing Department. She has more than 32 years’ experience in fighting housing discrimination and advocating for the citizens of Stark County.
