Call an expert lawyer from our legal firm to help you defend your rights.
Discrimination is a problem that can occur in all aspects of life, but it is especially damaging when it occurs to a person or a family that is looking for a rental home to live in. The most vulnerable in these situations are usually minorities looking for low-income housing.
How do you know if you’re dealing with discrimination?
There are several signs that can tell you if you’re dealing with discrimination, some of which are: if a landlord requests additional background checks, denies a potential tenant available housing, adds restrictive standards, refuses to provide disabled parking, imposes a “no pets” policy for service animals, or recommends a different apartment that “could fit better with the person’s appearance.”
According to California housing laws, such behavior is unacceptable and illegal. The lawyers of Castelblanco Law Group, A Prof. Law Corp. have been representing low-income and minority families in housing discrimination cases.
The Fair Housing Act is a federal law that exists to protect tenants who suffer discrimination for any of the following reasons:
- Race and color
- Sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation
- Civil rights
- Disability and medical conditions
- Nationality and origin
