Fair Housing

 
Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Fair Housing Act), as amended, prohibits discrimination because of disability, sex, race, color, national origin, religion or familial status.  Fair housing means that all people have equal access to housing of their choice.

The Fair Housing Act covers most housing. The Act exempts owner-occupied buildings with no more than four units, single-family housing sold or rented without the use of a broker, and housing operated by organizations and private clubs that limit occupancy to members. More on the Fair Housing Act
