Housing Discrimination Due to National Origin
What is National Origin Discrimination?
Are you concerned your landlord is discriminating against you because of your immigration status?
It is illegal for a property manager or owner to treat a tenant or potential tenant differently based on birthplace, ethnicity, culture, or ancestry.
This includes refusing to rent or make necessary
repairs to a unit, or harassing a tenant because of their perceived national origin.

Has your landlord threatened to evict you because you have complained about unsafe living conditions?
It is illegal for your landlord to harass, attempt to evict, raise the rent or take any other kind of retaliatory action because you attempted to exercise your fair housing rights.

Are you concerned about finding housing?
Are you looking for a rental, but concerned the landlord will ask for a social security number? Do you have bad credit or no credit? Are you concerned about negotiating the lease because you do not speak English well?
The fair housing toolkit is a resource created for social service agencies, members of the immigrant community and their advocates to assist with understanding national origin discrimination, and includes tips for creating a renter's resume.
