QUESTIONS ASKED ABOUT FAIR HOUSING

What actions, in connection with the rental of housing, are considered discriminatory? Discrimination can take many forms. It can be as direct as a refusal to rent because of the

applicant’s race, color, national origin, relon, sex, familial status (because the household

includes children) or handicap. Discrimination canalso be indirect. For example, an apartment

complex rule may not appear to be discriminatory on its face but it may be applied in such a way

that a protected group suffermore harshly from the rule.If the owner does not have a

legitimate

business

reason

for

the

rule,

it

may

found

discriminatory.

Clear

examples

of

discriminatory conduct include:

  • Refusing to rent to a person because of their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status or disability

  • Landlords or rental agents who, while not directly refusing to rent, engage in conduct which discourages or makes housing unavailable

  • Landlords who impose different terms and conditions on those who are members of a protected group

  • Landlords or property managers who steer tenants of a protected class to particular buildings or units

  • Advertisements which exclude members of a protected group

  • Stating that a unit is not available for rental when it is available
