Errors & Ommissions/Miscellaneous Professional Liability
Insurance (“E&O” or “MPLI”)
Cyber Insurance

New HUD Guidance Released on Criminal Background and Housing!

Julien CastroJulian Castro, the HUD Secretary, announced the release of new guidance on HUD’s interpretation of how the Fair Housing Act applies to policies that exclude people with criminal records. HUD says that private landlords who have blanket bans on renting to people with criminal records are in violation of the Fair Housing Act.

 

This new guidance utilizes a legal standard that was upheld by the United States Supreme Court last year that allows plaintiffs to challenge housing practices that have a discriminatory effect without having to show discriminatory intent. Federal officials say that this new guidance is intended to emphasize to landlords that blanket bans are illegal and to inform housing applicants of their rights.
