Fair Housing Statement
Halo Group Realty and its technology provider, Inside Real Estate, fully support the principles of the Fair Housing Act (Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968), as amended, which generally prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status (including children under the age of 18 living with parents of legal custodians, pregnant women, and people securing custody of children under the age of 18), and handicap (disability). As an adjunct to the foregoing commitment, both Halo Group Realty and Inside Real Estate actively promote, and are committed to, creating and fostering an environment of diversity throughout their respective organizations and franchise systems, and each views such a concept as a critical component to the on-going success of their business operations.
Accessibility and Fair Housing
Both are governed by federal laws that set out standards and requirements for ensuring equal access to housing and public spaces for all individuals, regardless of their disability status or other protected characteristics.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the primary federal law that governs accessibility for individuals with disabilities. The ADA requires that public and commercial facilities, including buildings, sidewalks, and transportation systems, be designed and constructed to provide equal access and use to individuals with disabilities. The ADA also requires that reasonable accommodations be made to ensure that individuals with disabilities have equal access to employment, transportation, and other services.
The Fair Housing Act (FHA) is another federal law that prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability. The FHA requires that housing providers make reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities and ensure that their properties are accessible to individuals with disabilities. The FHA also prohibits discrimination in the sale or rental of housing based on protected characteristics.
In Collin County, these federal laws are enforced by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which investigates complaints of discrimination and provides resources and training to ensure compliance with the ADA and FHA.
Collin County also has its own local ordinances and programs in place to ensure accessibility and fair housing. For example, the county has an Accessibility Coordinator who is responsible for reviewing construction plans and ensuring that public buildings and facilities are compliant with the ADA. The county also has a Fair Housing Program that provides education and outreach to residents and housing providers on fair housing laws and how to prevent discrimination in housing.
In addition, the county’s Housing Authority provides affordable housing to eligible low-income residents, and has programs in place to ensure that the housing is accessible to individuals with disabilities. The Housing Authority also works to promote fair housing practices and prevent discrimination in housing.
Overall, Collin County, Texas is committed to ensuring that all residents have equal access to housing and public spaces, regardless of their disability status or other protected characteristics. The county works to comply with federal laws and has its own programs and initiatives in place to ensure accessibility and fair housing for all.
