Housing Discrimination


Federal and state fair housing laws prohibit a landlord from discriminating against a tenant based upon the tenant’s race, color, national origin, religion, sex (gender), disability or familial status. Some cities have enacted local ordinances that provide additional protections, from discrimination based upon factors like sexual orientation, gender identity, age, and Vietnam-era or disabled veteran status. Fair housing laws also require a landlord to make a reasonable modification or accommodation for a disabled tenant.
