Reporting Housing Discrimination
Have you been a victim of Housing Discrimination? If so, you have rights under State and Federal law.
The Howard University School of Law Fair Housing Clinic encourages you to contact state and Federal agenices to determine whether you have legal recourse. Housing discrimination acts may take on a number of forms. Examples may include refusal to rent because of race, refusal to make certain modifications to a rental unit occupied by a disabled tenant or denial of property insurance.
In short, irrespective of the manner in which it is manifested, Housing Discrimination is illegal.
Please access state and federal agencies on the right hand side. If you have questions regarding your situation, then you can contact us to determine how the law protects you from housing discrimination.
