Long Island Housing Services, Inc., a non-profit agency that serves our community by advocating fair housing is looking to hire per diem employees to help with our Fair Lending Investigations. We have found that actors have the best skills for this position as they are able to memorize a script and follow directions. The title of the position is a tester. A tester will be paid $17/hr and compensated for both training and travel to assignments. www.Lifairhousing.org
LIHS is a non-profit civil rights organization dedicated to promoting equal opportunity in housing on Long Island. LIHS is dedicated to:
· Eliminating unlawful housing discrimination
· Encouraging the development of low income and affordable housing
· Promoting open, accessible and inclusive communities
· Facilitating and strengthening enforcement of Fair Housing laws
· Educating and assisting the public regarding housing rights and opportunities in the region.
LIHS’ activities include:
· Fair housing investigations (rental, sales, insurance and lending)
· Testing and advocacy to facilitate enforcement and compliance
· Public and private industry education
LIHS offers the following additional services:
· Landlord/Tenant counseling and referrals
· Mortgage default/foreclosure prevention counseling and legal services
· Pre/Post purchase counseling
· Loan Scam and Loan Modification Rescue Scam education and reporting
FAIR LENDING TESTING PROGRAM
· LIHS recruits and trains individuals to be testers that will help gather information about current market and industry practices. Fair housing laws protect everyone from unlawful housing discrimination. Through its testing program, LIHS’ ability to investigate real estate-related transactions and practices (rentals, sales, insurance and lending) and aid with the enforcement of local, state, and federal fair housing laws is enhanced significantly. Testing (aka investigation) is an investigative tool used to gather evidence. Generally, fair housing testing refers to the use of individuals who, without a bona fide [genuine] intent to rent or purchase a home, apartment or other dwelling, or without a bona fide intent to apply for a mortgage loan, pose as prospective renters and purchasers of real estate or borrowers for the purpose of gathering information which may indicate whether a housing provider or lender is complying with fair housing and lending laws. In essence, testers would be going ’undercover’ like mystery shoppers to lending institutions and pretending to be applying for mortgages with the financial information we provide them. The tester then writes a report about how they were treated by the bank and what loan options the bank offered them. We use those reports to see if any discrimination has occurred. Courts have found testing to be persuasive evidence and sometimes the only credible or competent evidence available to corroborate an allegation of housing or lending discrimination. This type of investigation has been used since the Civil Rights Era and is a completely legal and credible form of investigation.
