You have the right to choose where to
live. Any real estate person, broker, or leasing agent, who
discourages you from being or being interested in certain properties, or
certain areas of town, could be considered steering.
The terms of rental agreements must
apply to all renters. The law prohibits the changing of such terms
to deny or discourage your access to rental properties.
The following types of situations may
also be in violation of the law: 1) Raising the price of the
property you're interested in for the purpose of keeping you out; or 2)
Requiring a higher down payment or security deposit from you but not from
others on an equal basis.
FALSE DENIALS OF AVAILABILITY
Federal, State, and local laws prohibit
real estate persons, brokers, and property agents from telling you the
property you are interested in is unavailable, when it is in fact
available for rent or purchase.
Ads or commercials for houses or
apartments cannot, by law, show any preferences for renters or buyers
based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, national origin,
ancestry, or families with children.
