Fair Housing Act Claims
The Fair Housing Act of 1968 is intended to protect Americans from discriminatory practices during the financing, sale, or rental of a home. Sadly, many people in Austin struggle with the very discriminatory practices prohibited by this law. While these practices may have an immediate effect on individuals and their families, they will have the opportunity to pursue legal action against the individual or organization that discriminated against them.
If you believe your rights have been violated, you should contact a Fair Housing Act attorney in Austin to better understand what your legal options may be.
