Fair Housing

Fair Housing is a right protected by Federal and State laws. Each resident is entitled to equal access to housing opportunities regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, familial status, marital status, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, source of income, or any other arbitrary reason.

Signs of discrimination include:

The rent or deposit quoted is higher than advertised.
The manager says the unit is rented but the ad or sign is still posted.

The manager says "You probably won't like it here", "We've rented out the family units", or "There is no place for your children to play".

A real estate agent keeps "steering" you to look for houses in neighborhoods different than the ones you desire and you think you can afford.

The manager denies your request to make minor modifications to your unit to accommodate your disability.

The primary purpose of Fair Housing / Tenant-Landlord Services is to actively support and promote freedom of residence in the City of Ventura to the extent that all persons, regardless of race, religion, national origin, sex, color, age, physical handicap, familial status or income source, will be allowed the same opportunity to secure housing they desire and can afford. Secondarily, the program seeks to provide centralized information to educate and raise awareness of the rights and responsibilities of both tenants and landlords in a rental relationship.
