Fair Housing Laws and Your Rights as a Renter

I came across a situation this week where a landlord casually mentioned his criteria for his next tenant. I immediately reminded him of the legal consequences when making rules that discriminate against any particular ethnic group or orientation.



In light of this, it made me question how many renters/buyers have encountered a situation where a landlord has made comments to you about the types of people who live in their buildings and who they want living their in the future. Although I do not have specific statistics on this issue, casually asking some renters in the New York City area, I was stunned!


I invite you to please take a moment and read about the Fair Housing Act and what it means to you:

As always, if you have questions or you feel like you have been treated unfairly or have seen advertisements for rental or sale units that appear discriminating, contact me.

  1. As for the sale and rental of residential properties, it is important that you know your rights as clearly stated and emphasized by this Act on housing. For example, it is forbidden to be denied a place to live based on their color or race, and others. It is illegal if they refused to sell or rent a house for superficial reasons and stereotypes.
