Fair housing laws - protected classes in Hawaii
We all know that due to the Fair Housing Act there are federally protected classes of people who cannot be discriminated against regarding housing or real estate issues . There are stiff penalties for violating the Fair Housing Act.
In Hawaii we also have some additional classes who are protected from discrimination in any real estate transaction or advertising. Here's the brief list:
- marital status
I like to think that Hawaii is a diverse state where everyone is treated equally.
How are things in your area? What are some of the protected classes that are unique to your state?
Thanks for reading my Maui blog...
