Tenant Discrimination

Illegal housing discrimination occurs when a landlord discriminates against a potential or current tenant based on their membership in a class or based on something that is unique to them as an individual.

 

A landlord cannot discriminate against a tenant because of:

  • Race
  • Color
  • National origin
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Religious preference
  • Family status
  • Disability

 

Discrimination however, does not include actions taken by a landlord based upon a person’s behavioral characteristics such as past behavior as a tenant, credit score, wealth, job security, etc.

 

Fair Housing Laws protect your rights
