Fair Housing Services
You have a right to live
where you want to live. The Fair Housing Amendments Act specifically prohibits
discrimination in any area of housing because of race, color, national origin,
religion, sex, handicap/disability or familial status.
The Ohio – Landlord Bill,
effective November 4, 1974 applies to most landlord-tenant relations and
governs most rental agreements, whether written or oral.
We have informational
brochures for Tenant-Landlord Laws. Please call the local contact for
