Questions and Answers on Fair Housing Laws
Posted: December 29, 2019 by Rebecca Williams
I am here to help you buy and sell real estate, but also like to share great information that relates to those actions. Today I chose to highlight Fair Housing.
The purpose of the fair housing laws is to protect a person’s right to own, sell, purchase, or rent housing of his or her choice without fear of unlawful discrimination. The fair housing laws are intended to allow everyone equal access to housing. State and Federal fair housing laws prohibit discrimination in the housing market on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, handicap, or familial status. To discriminate against a person on the basis of his or her membership in one of these protected categories is against the law.
This pamphlet, provided by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission will focus primarily on the fair housing laws as they are applied in the State of North Carolina.
