Fair Housing Sexual Harassment

During the COVID-19 crisis, many people are struggling to pay rent. Unfortunately, some unscrupulous landlords try to force tenants to provide sexual favors in exchange for canceling or reducing rent. Sexual harassment in housing situations is illegal under the Fair Housing Act. If your landlord asks for sex or a maintenance person refuses to fix something in your apartment because you won’t provide sexual favors, that’s illegal. File a complaint with HUD and put a stop to it.

Fair Housing Discrimination

As our family continued to grow, we started looking for a new home. The landlord told us he wasn’t comfortable renting to people with children because they might go to school or daycare and bring home COVID-19.” COVID-19 inequity is real, and it shouldn’t be made worse because of housing discrimination. If you suspect housing discrimination because of your familial status, fi le a complaint with HUD or your local fair housing center so we can investigate it.
