No Kids Upfront

Think of this scenario: an apartment community decided to place a family with young children at the back of the building and placed residents without children at the front of the building. Or maybe the apartment is near a busy road and the apartment manager suggests instead that they reside at a sister property that’s in a more secluded residential area away from busy streets. They made these decisions because they genuinely believe that it would definitely be safer for the kids. You may not think this is not a problem but Familial Status is a protected class and these would be “steering” Fair Housing discrimination violations by segregating families with children. We often see good landlords wanting to do something like this because they find it “safer” for the kids. That is well-intended but illegal. The appropriateness of your property for kids is the role of the parents, not you. Like and Share if YOU Play to Win to be a Fair Housing Champion!
