Fair Housing

According to the federal Fair Housing Act, it is illegal to consider race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability or family status in rental, sales, lending or homeowner’s insurance decisions. Under the Minnesota Human Rights Law, it is also illegal to discriminate based on one’s creed, sexual or affectional orientation, marital status and receipt of public assistance.
