Fair and Equal Housing

Under State and Federal laws it is illegal for a landlord or home seller to treat people differently in a housing situation because of their race, religion, sex, family status, sexual orientation or use of public assistance. You have rights if you feel you are facing discrimination.

Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act establishes federal policy for providing fair housing throughout the United States. The intent of Title VIII is to assure equal housing opportunities for all citizens.
