Avoiding Discrimination Claims from Families with Children
In this month’s feature, we discussed how to avoid discriminating against families with children, in violation of the federal Fair Housing Act. Discrimination claims may arise from the way you advertise vacancies, show apartments, apply occupancy standards, and enforce house rules, to name a few aspects of day-to-day management. We gave you seven rules for what not to do when dealing with families with children—that is, potential trouble spots and how to handle them.
