- Familial Status
The Laws protect against discriminatory actions (based on one of the factors above) such as:
- refusing to sell or rent
- sexual harassment
- quoting a difference in housing availability
- quoting a difference insecurity deposit required
- quoting a different monthly rent
- refusing to rent to a family or individual with children
