Yes this sounds like public information.Legally they can do so, the public has this available to them.I see not problem with it if they feel it will help them sell the properties.Certainly its legal to do so since the public and schools keep these numbers for public use. It is common to do so.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks

If you can positive rate5 stars it is much appreciated.

It's interesting to hear your reply - Supposedly we have answers that we are NOT allowed to dissiminate that information ==
it is a violation of the Fair Housing Act !!!
It's difficult when you get opinions to know what to do legally and ethically.
Thank you.

I don't see that this falls under the Act as far as prohibited activities

What are the generally prohibited activities in real estate transactions under the Illinois Human Rights Act?

  • Refusing to engage in a real estate transaction;
  • Altering the terms or conditions or privileges of the transaction or in the furnishing of facilities or connected services;
  • Refusing to receive or transmit a bona fide offer in a transaction;
  • Misrepresenting the availability of property for inspection, rental or sale when in fact the property is available;
  • Failing to disclose property listings;
  • Circulating written material that indicates directly or indirectly intent to commit unlawful discrimination;
  • Expressing orally or in writing an intent to directly or indirectly engage in unlawful discrimination;
  • Offering, soliciting, accepting, using or retaining a listing knowing unlawful discrimination is intended;
  • Blockbusting, racial steering, panic peddling or using restrictive covenants;
  • Discriminatory mortgage or lending practices by a financial institution.

You are just giving out information here, how people choose to use it is their problem.

Thanks again and thanks for rating 5 stars.
