Portland's New FAIR Ordinance

The heart of the FAIR Act (Fair Access in Renting), is about addressing the criteria that continues to be used as a proxy for race, including criminal records, income requirements, and credit scores, which lead to discrimination and disparate outcomes.

Key takeaways include: low barrier criteria, a 72 hour notice period, the right to request an accommodation or modification, non-applicant tenants, max screening fees, individual assessments, and new $250 fines. Watch below as David Moore of Equity Advantage, and our latest Expert Russell White discuss the key points of the "FAIR" Act, and how it applies today!

Thank you to our latest Expert: Russell White, Director of Residential Property Management for Bluestone & Hockley.
