The Fair Housing Act covers most housing. In some circumstances, the Act exempts owner-occupied buildings with no more than four units, single-family homes sold or rented without the use of a broker and housing operated by organizations and private clubs that limit occupancy to members.
How to Recognize Housing Discrimination?
Most Housing discrimination doesn’t always mean having a door slammed in your face or bigoted remark directed your way. Unsuspecting renters or home buyers may be politely turned away from housing of their choice, even though they are qualified.
