  • Seaside: After living in unit for six months and waiting years on Section 8 waitlist, a tenant was at long-last granted a voucher. The landlord refused to accept it, which violates state fair housing law.  FHCO advocated and the landlord then accepted the voucher payments.
  • Lincoln City: A tenant was sexually harassed by property manager since moving in. The manager has asked her for sex in lieu of rent. She learned the manager has done this with other women in the complex. 
  • Bandon: An apartment resident provided her landlord with a verification of her need for an assistance animal. The landlord denied her request, saying that they could not accept a document stating the tenant has a disability, which they believed would make them liable under Fair Housing. FHCO contacted the landlord and explained that verifications are permitted under the law; the requirement is that the landlord keep the information confidential. The landlord then agreed to accept the assistance animal.
