Federal and state fair housing laws prohibit housing discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status. In addition, Virginia’s Fair Housing Law further protects “elderliness,” individuals age 55 or older, from housing discrimination.

Fair Housing Law protects people from bias when trying to rent an apartment, buy a house, obtain a mortgage, or purchase homeowner’s insurance. Fair housing requirements apply to all housing providers – property managers, owners, landlords, real estate agents, banks, savings institutions, credit unions, insurance companies, mortgage lenders, and appraisers.
