Owning or renting a home is a fundamental part of the American Dream.Searching for a home should not be hindered by discriminatory practices.
The Fair Housing Act, in addition to Florida’s own housing laws, protects against discrimination in the rental, sale, financing, and insuring of housing for individuals in a protected class. Many Fair Housing Act violations are due to a lack of awareness and understanding of the law. The Seminole County Bar Association Legal Aid Society is proud to partner with other organizations to provide education and investigate violations of the Fair Housing Act and Fair Lending practices.
If you or someone you know is experiencing housing discrimination, please contact the HELP line at 1-800-405-1417 for an evaluation.
