Housing Discrimination/Fair Housing
Landlords may not refuse to rent to a tenant because of the prospective tenant’s race, color, religion, sex, disability, marital status, familial status (including number of children), sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or source of income (including HCV & Section 8 and SSI/SSDI). A tenant who has been unfairly denied housing for any of the foregoing reasons may file a complaint with the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights, or the tenant may file their case in the appropriate federal or state court. Discriminating landlords have been ordered to pay money damages to tenants exceeding $120,000 and have been ordered to pay fines and costs exceeding $30,000. If a fair housing complaint has been filed against you, or if you have been unfairly denied housing, we may be able to help you resolve your claim.
Many fair housing complaints are denied due to late filings. Schedule your consultation today. Browse our website. Call our attorneys today.
