“Accessibility to housing—regardless of race, age, religion or disability—is a cornerstone of American life and is something many take for granted. While attention is often focused on the high-profile, anti-discriminatory provisions of the Fair Housing Act (FHA)—also known as Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968—the measure also provides construction requirements for most multifamily buildings or complexes with more than four units for sale or rent. And depending on the size of the building and how many units are involved, the ramifications for noncompliance can be costly for developers and owners.”
