Did you know that April is Fair Housing month?
April 11th marked the 50th anniversary of the Federal Fair Housing Act of 1968. In 1969, Nebraska also followed suit with the Nebraska Civil Rights Act of 1969.
Always remember, discrimination based on color, race, religion, sex, disability, national origin, or familial status is illegal. This applies to property managers, real estate licensees, and multiple listing services. Some examples of unlawful acts include being discriminatory in advertising a property, showing or making available a property for sale or rent, financing, and possession and enjoyment of a property. The housing law also prohibits retaliation. You can also read more about the Fair Housing Rules by going to http://www.neoc.ne.gov/laws/pdf/HousingRules.pdf
One of the more common areas of discrimination is in advertising. Remember when advertising a property, describe the property and not the person who might live there. You will want to avoid words, phrases, symbols, and photographs that convey that your property is not available to or is also only available to a particular person and not to everyone.
