Tenant Discrimination

Tenant Discrimination:

Illegal housing discrimination occurs when a landlord discriminates against a tenant based on their membership in a class or based on something that is unique to them as an individual.  No landlord has the right to treat a person differently because of their race, color, national origin, gender, age, religious preference, family status or disability.  Discrimination does not include actions taken based upon behavioral characteristics such as their past behavior as a tenant, credit score, wealth, job security, etc.  Discrimination can sometimes be difficult to prove.  However, if you feel that you have been discriminated against based on any of the factors above, call us now for a free consultation.  Fair Housing Laws protect your rights as a tenant and no landlord should be able to illegally discriminate against a potential or current tenant.
