The Fair Housing Act was enacted by Congress as Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968. Under the current law, it is unlawful to discriminate in any aspect relating to the sale, rental, advertising, or financing of dwellings based on seven protected classifications, specifically: Race, color, religion, national origin, sex, handicap or familial status.
You can recognize if you are a victim of housing discrimination—and protect your rights—if you know what actions by landlords, sellers, lenders and others are against the law.
You may file a complaint by contacting the HUD office nearest you or by contacting the Montgomery County Fair Housing Liaison:
