April is Fair Housing Month
Know Your Rights
April 09, 2013
As part of the national recognition of Fair Housing Month, the City of Tallahassee, in partnership with the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR), is hosting a workshop examining fair housing rights and what recourse citizens have if their rights are violated. The workshop will take place on Thursday, April 25, from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. at the FCHR office, located at 2009 Apalachee Parkway, Suite 100.
Given recent economic challenges, many individuals and families are seeking new housing options. Many homebuyers and renters may be unaware of their rights while doing so. The goal of this workshop is to provide information to homebuyers, renters, housing providers, realtors, attorneys and others involved in the housing market about fair housing and lending practices, laws and more.
The workshop is free and open to the public. Those interested in attending should RSVP no later than April 16 to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 488-7082, ext. 1092.
