Basic Fair Housing Information
Fair housing is a right, not a privilege. Each of us is a member of several protected classes. Fair Housing laws apply to and protect all of us.
What is Fair Housing?
It is the policy of the United States to provide, within constitutional limitation, for fair housing throughout the United States. City, state, and federal fair housing laws require that all people have an equal opportunity to buy, rent, and live in housing of their choice.
The federal Fair Housing Act makes housing discrimination in the sale, financing, or rental of housing or housing related services unlawful if based upon:
* Race *Color *Religion *National Origin *Gender *Familial Status *Disability
Colorado law also protects:
* Sexual Orientation *Creed *Ancestry *Marital Status
