Fair Housing Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Fair Housing Rights of Persons with Disabilities_Website post_060122

The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing related transactions because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability or familial status. Many state and local laws also prohibit housing discrimination based on several additional protected classes.

The Fair Housing Act applies to a wide variety of housing transactions, including rentals, sales, home mortgages, appraisals and homeowners insurance. Landlords, real estate agents, lenders, insurance companies, and condominium, cooperative and homeowners’ associations must not discriminate because of one’s membership in a protected class.

Housing discrimination is against the law. The only way to stop discrimination is to report it. For more information, visit: https://www.lakewalesfl.gov/DocumentCenter/View/5394/brochure-fair-housing-for-persons-with-disabilities-eng1
