Rental Discrimination: Family, Pregnancy, or Children
The Fair Housing Act prohibits a landlord from discriminating in renting based on pregnancy, households with minor children, or households securing the legal custody of a minor child. Public amenities in an apartment complex cannot discriminate against children (e.g., “No children in the pool area”). Federal law does not protect against discrimination in the rental of housing based on marital status, but some states and local laws do.
