Housing Discrimination based on Marital Status

Freiman Legal can help California residents fight their Housing Discrimination based on Marital Status.

In the instance you are denied an chance to rent a home, condo, townhouse or apartment—or even given false information regarding a rental—because of your marital status, you are a victim of housing discrimination pertaining to marital status. Furthermore, it is illegal for landlords or other housing managers to treat in-place residents or their guests without favor due to their marital status.

Here are some Warning Signs of Marital Status Discrimination

  • Rental advertising that focuses on married couples.
  • Refusing to rent to roommates, unmarried couples, or single parents because the housing provider prefers married couples as tenants.
  • Setting specific curfews for single residents.
  • Requiring unmarried couples to document that they have joint bank accounts or other evidence that they have a long-term relationship.
  • Giving special incentives or discounts to married couples that are normally not offered to other applicants.
  • Terminating the rental agreement of a certain spouse or partner because the other spouse or partner moved out of the home.
