The Fair Housing Act of 1974 is a national policy of fair housing throughout the US. The act makes it illegal to discriminate in the sale, lease, or rental of housing. The owner or landlord also can not make housing unavailable because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, or national origin. No matter who you are in the home buying process, you are affected by it. If you are the home buyer and you feel as if you are discriminated, you can file a housing discrimination claim. The claim will be sent to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Fair Housing Act is something that will always be there for you when you are adventuring through the home buying process. In the end the home buying process can be stressful, but remember to stay calm and that the realtor is always there to help you.
