Bias Override: Overcoming Barriers to Fair Housing
In this video, you will watch an online workshop to help members avoid implicit bias in their daily business interactions. The mind science experts at the Perception Institute present an online workshop to help members avoid implicit bias in their daily business interactions. Drawing upon the latest evidence-based research, Perception explains how our brains’ automatic, instant association of stereotypes with particular groups can cause us to treat those who are different from us unfairly, despite our best intentions and often without our conscious awareness. Perception then applies these concepts to the everyday work of REALTORS®, and offers strategies to override bias in order to convey respect, ensure fairness, and improve business relationships.

Using the Fair Housing and Discrimination Advisory Form in zipForm
Chapters 0:00 FHDA Form 0:34 Bundled Forms 0:56 Signature Block Populating 1:51 Location of FHDA Form Today we will be discussing the Fair Housing and Discrimination Advisory form inside pf zipForm. On October 1, 2020 C.A.R. introduced the Fair Housing and Discrimination Advisory, the FHDA, into the CAR standard forms library. The FHDA is available as a stand-alone document or comes bundled with 21 other CAR forms. There are ten purchase agreements that now have the FHDA bundled with them. As well, there are five sale listing agreements, three buyer representation agreements, two Landlord-Tenant Agreements and the single party compensation agreement that all have the FHDA bundled. Page 2 of the FHDA has signature blocks for principals in the relevant transaction, be they buyers, sellers, landlords or tenants. zipForm will auto-fill the applicable names on the FHDA form regardless of the bundle package. For example, In the RPA and other purchase agreements, buyer and seller names will auto-fill. In the listing agreements, only the seller names will auto-fill. In the buyer representation agreements, buyer names will auto-fill. both landlord and tenant names will auto-fill on the LR but only the landlord/owner name will populate the LL form. When attached to the single party compensation agreement, the buyer or seller name in the FHDA should match the name of the Principal who will be paying compensation as specified in the SP form. The location of the FHDA form depends on the primary form to which it is attached. In all purchase agreements, listing agreements and buyer representation agreements, the FHDA is the second form in the bundle immediately following the two-page agency disclosure form. In the lease listing and single party compensation agreement, the FHDA is the last document, following the primary form. For the Residential Lease And Month-To-Month Rental Agreement the FHDA is also the last form in the bundle, but in that case it follows the primary form and other forms that are essential to a completed lease or rental, such as the bed bug disclosure, tenant floor hazard disclosure and rent cap and just cause addendum.
