Fair Housing Education and Outreach

ARE YOU A VICTIM OF HOUSING DISCRIMINATION? FAIR HOUSING IS YOUR RIGHT!

The American Dream of having a safe and decent place to call “home” reflects our shared belief that in this nation, opportunity, and success are within everyone’s reach. Under our Fair Housing laws, every person is assured the opportunity to build a better life in the home or apartment of their choice- regardless of their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, family, status, or disability.

UNDER THE FAIR HOUSING ACT, IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO:

  • Refuse to rent or sell you housing
  • Tell you housing is unavailable when in fact it is available
  • Show you apartments or homes only in certain neighborhoods
  • Set different terms, conditions, or privileges for sale or rental of a dwelling
  • Provide different housing services or facilities
  • Advertise housing to preferred groups of people only
  • Refuse to provide you with information regarding mortgage loans, deny you a mortgage loan, or impose different terms or conditions on mortgage loan
  • Deny you property insurance
  • Conduct property appraisals in a discriminatory manner
  • Refuse to let you make reasonable modifications to your dwelling or common use areas, at your expense, if it may be necessary for you to fully use the housing. (Where reasonable, a landlord may permit changes only if you agree to restore the property to its original condition when you move.)
  • Refuse to make reasonable accommodations in rules, policies, practices, or services if it may be necessary for you to use the housing on an equal basis with nondisabled persons.
  • Fail to design and construct housing in an accessible manner.
  • Harass, coerce, intimidate, or interfere with anyone exercising or assisting someone else with his/her fair housing rights

It is Unlawful to Discriminate in Housing Based on these Factors:

  • Race
  • Color
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Familial status (families with children under the age of 18, or who are expecting a child)
  • Disability
