Ct Supreme Court discards Landlords Reason for Rejecting Tenant

By
Real Estate Agent with Northwest Ct Realty

 

I am attaching a link to an article posted by the Ct Association of Realtors. As we are all aware federal fair housing laws make it illegal to refuse to rent or sell to any person based on race, color, religion,sex,familial statusor national origin. You will read in the article that Ct has added to these protected classes, "lawful source of income". The article is very informative and basically now in Ct landlords cannot refuse Section 8 tenants.

In the last year I have had more requests not only from prospective tenants needing assistance in locatng rental properties but also from owners looking to rent their properties. Just another thing to be aware of with this aspect of the business. Anyone have first hand experiences with this type of discrimination or any other types to share with our colleagues.
