Housing Discrimination in Los Angeles

Experienced Attorneys at Reisman & Reisman

Over 50 years ago, the United States began passing meaningful legislature to protect American citizens from discriminatory housing practices. The Civil Rights Act of 1968 put down in writing clear and strict prohibitions for multi-family residential real estate entities to follow, leaving those who have been wrongfully discriminated against protected in the eyes of the law.

If you’ve been wrongfully denied housing due to your membership in a protected class, we want to help you file a claim against your offenders and pursue the compensation you are owed.

What Is Housing Discrimination?

Owners of multi-family residential real estate, which includes homeowners’ associations and property management companies, may not discriminate against their renters based on their memberships in protected classes.

Protected classes include the following:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Ancestry
  • National Origin
  • Religion
  • Sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions)
  • Disability: Physical or mental
  • Age (40 and older)
  • Genetic information
  • Marital status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity and gender expression
  • AIDS/HIV
  • Medical condition
  • Political activities or affiliations
  • Military or veteran status, and
  • Status as a victim of domestic violence, assault, or stalking.

Additionally, multi-family residential real entities have obligations under both state and federal to make reasonable accommodations for disabled tenants. If you have been evicted, denied an accommodation, or otherwise found yourself in a situation where your rights as a tenant have been violated, please call us for a free consultation. There is no fee unless we win.
