Equal Housing Opportunity Community


We support Equal Housing Opportunity. All renters are hereby informed that all rental offers are available on an equal opportunity basis. We go to great lengths to comply with the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits “any preference, limitation, or discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin, or intention to make such preference, limitation or discrimination.” We will not establish discriminatory terms or conditions in the rental agreement, or advertise that the property is available only to persons of a certain race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national original.

 

Property Owner’s & Manager’s Responsibilities

We have a responsibility and a requirement under the law not to discriminate in the rental of property on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. We will not establish discriminatory terms or conditions in the rental, deny that housing is available, or advertise that the property is available only to persons of a certain race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national original.
