ADA Title III and Fair Housing: Developments and Trends

ADA Title III and Fair Housing: Developments and Trends
February 20, 2013

The real estate industry faces ongoing challenges in design and building with the continuing evolution of Titles II and III of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Robert L. Duston, a partner in our Construction Practice, will explain some of the key issues associated with recent developments in this law and related issues under the Fair Housing Act for residential properties during a seminar hosted by the firm’s Real Estate Practice.

This presentation will cover types of lawsuits and claims that the industry faces, particularly with the expansion of the meaning of who is a person with a disability under the law and the accommodations the industry must provide in places of public accommodation. Robert will also talk about Department of Justice enforcement trends, landlord-tenant issues and key issues in the 2010 ADA Standards.

Real estate industry executives who are responsible for ensuring their companies comply with either the ADA or FHA will benefit from this presentation. The event will begin at 12:00 p.m. with a 30-minute lunch followed by a 1-hour presentation at Saul Ewing’s Philadelphia office, 1500 Market Street, 38th Floor.

This program has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 1 hour of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit and 0 hours of ethics, professionalism or substance abuse CLE credit.
