Housing discrimination is prohibited by the Fair Housing Act. Discrimination covered by the Act can take many different forms beyond just raising prices or lying about availability. For example, the Act addresses wheelchair access in some newer properties. Learn what the Fair Housing Act covers, how to complain, and how the investigation process works.
I am writing this letter to inform you that I am transferred from Edinburg to Malinda Valley. I am to report there on 1st of the next month. According to our agreement, I had to give a prior notice of 30 days before leaving the house. So this is my formal notice. I also want to request you that my advance money is returned to me on the above date because it will be very difficult for me to collect that afterwards. I hope that you will accept my notice and will give my advance money back on time as per contract.
With all respect I would like to bring it to your knowledge that I have found a house for me and my family. As I told you that they are moving to Miami from Pakistan, your apartment is very good but it’s not possible for me to accommodate a family of 5 members in this apartment, I have got a new house on rent in the same area near your house. I would highly appreciate if you clear my all bills and rent. And hand over me my deposit as I have to give it to my new land lord. I shall be really thankful to you.
In 2017, 37,000 homes were built as rentals, according to the National Association of Home Builders. That grew to 43,000 last year, or just under 5% of total single-family housing starts. But that is just homes built and held by builders for rent and doesn't include those sold directly to investors, so the numbers are likely larger and growing more quickly.
The Fair Housing Act does not specifically prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. But discrimination against someone who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) may still be in violation of the Act or other state or local regulations. If you think you've been discriminated against for these reasons, file a complaint as described above, or email HUD at LGBTFairhousing@hud.gov with general questions about LGBT housing issues.
