How People Violate Fair Housing Laws

When you are selling or renting a property, you want to avoid running afoul of the various anti-discrimination provisions.  Even if the Federal Government does not think you are worth going after, an aggrieved potential buyer or renter could bring their own lawsuit and hit your wallet.  Not to mention that some organizations, including government agencies, send undercover folks to see if they can find examples of discrimination.
