  Guidance on Inspections, Appraisals for Tenant-Occupied Homes in Contract  
By Christal Park Keegan, NVR Legal Information Line Attorney

An overwhelming number of questions from our members to the Legal Information Lines seek guidance on executing due diligence terms on tenant-occupied homes in contract. The Governor has continued to protect tenants from having their doors flung open to the public during the pandemic by prohibiting open houses and in-person showings of tenant-occupied properties.

With that said, respect still needs to be given to tenants once a home is in contract. Click here to read the full article.

Six action steps you can take to start practicing inclusion and making positive changes toward eliminating discrimination

The global conversation surrounding race and discrimination has reached a new level, and it's important for industries across the board to take this opportunity to learn and grow. This is not a simple issue. There are many challenges that both individuals and businesses will face as they move forward to eradicate discriminatory systems.

In the real estate industry, there is one historical example of systemic racism that can help put this into perspective: redlining, which involved housing policies that discriminated against Black Americans.
