Fair Housing                                                                             What is Fair Housing?

The Fair Housing Act of 1968 was adopted to safeguard against illegal housing discrimination. The Law protects a person's right to own, sell, purchase, or rent housing of his or her choice without fear of unlawful discrimination.

*Fair housing is the umbrella term for laws and regulations that prohibit discrimination in the rental or sale of housing or in the provision of housing-related services.

*The goal of fair housing laws is to create housing markets that are free of discrimination.

*Fair housing laws ensure that you will not be prevented from choosing where you want to live because of illegal discrimination.

*Fair Housing laws protect you in many aspects of securing housing including advertising, mortgage lending, home insurance, rental applications and most interactions between landlords or property managers and tenants.

*Fair housing laws ensure that people with similar incomes in the same housing market have a similar range of choices available to them regardless of race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, disability, marital status, familial status, source of income, sexual orientation, age or any other arbitrary factor.
