Difference Between Fair Housing Law and Landlord-Tenant
What’s the difference between fair housing law and landlord-tenant law?

Landlord-tenant law encompasses all aspects of a tenant’s relationship with the housing provider, from move-in to move-out, and can include issues regarding timely repairs, rent increases, notices, and evictions. Fair housing law may involve any of these issues as well — but with the added element that the housing provider is violating a tenant’s rights due to their protected class status. If a housing dispute does not involve differential treatment due to protected class status, it would not fall under fair housing law, but it might fall under landlord-tenant law. FHCO staff can help you determine if your dispute involves a violation of fair housing law.
