Welcome to the Housing Discrimination section of FindLaw's Civil Rights center, with practical and historical information about federal fair housing laws. The legal concept of fair housing holds that no one should suffer unequal treatment in housing decisions based on a protected characteristic such as race, or disability. Anyone who treats an individual unequally in a housing decision based on one of these characteristics has likely engaged in housing discrimination in violation of the Fair Housing Act. This section contains information on discrimination and fair housing rights for home buyers and renters (tenants), and what to do if you are unlawfully denied housing.More
