Fair Housing Attorney


The cost of housing is skyrocketing, and tenants are increasingly being subjected to unfair and discriminatory housing practices. Federal and state laws protect tenants against exploitation and discrimination, and if you have been mistreated by a landlord, you may have a viable legal claim.

Under the federal Fair Housing Act and other state and federal laws, a landlord is prohibited from refusing to show or rent a property or change the terms or conditions of a rental agreement because of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, or disability. In the case of tenants with disabilities, landlords are required to make reasonable accommodations and modifications to allow tenants equal enjoyment of their dwelling.

These laws further require a landlord to take reasonable steps to remedy harassment by co-tenants or neighbors (in the case of multi-family housing). If you believe you have been wronged by a landlord’s discriminatory or exploitative actions, schedule a consultation with DeGolia Law to learn more about your possible legal claims.
