Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
Legally, a landlord can charge different rents for the same premises.
That said, if the LL is discriminating based on gender, you have a case.
To pursue a case would be time involved and expensive, so I would suggest negotiating and suggesting a gender price disparity.
LL not wanting to take on the risk and legal fees should adjust your rent.
Let me know if that is clear, thanks
The general rule is that the parties can contract at fair market value as they wish. However, the federal Fair Housing Act of 1968 and the federal Fair Housing Act Amendments Act of 1988 prohibit discrimination on the basis of the following criteria (called “protected categories”): race or color; religion; national origin; familial status or age—includes families with children under the age of 18 and pregnant women; disability or handicap, or sex.
Kindly rate me 5 stars.
thanks in advance.
