Helping You Fight Housing Discrimination
Housing discrimination is a serious problem that affects communities and people throughout Kansas City. Because property owners often privately own buildings, they may believe that they can prevent certain people from renting their property. The Fair Housing Act, however, stipulates that housing decisions should be made based on a person’s credit worthiness. Discrimination of any kind is illegal in real estate transactions.
You deserve to live and feel welcomed into a safe neighborhood, regardless of race, disability, age, gender or any other factor. At Carter Law Offices, we will work diligently to fight for your freedom to live where you want. We can help you file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and potentially file a lawsuit against the person affecting your housing opportunity. Whatever your goals are, we can help you meet them.
What We Can Do For You
A lawyer can help you file a lawsuit in either federal or state court, even if you have filed a complaint with a fair housing agency. Whether this is a good idea depends on the gravity of the discrimination, the evidence you can provide and other contributing factors that your attorney can help you evaluate. Even if you don’t file a lawsuit, your attorney can help you negotiate a settlement agreement with the discriminating party.
Housing discrimination is wrong, and you need skilled, trustworthy representation if you plan to fight it. The legal team at Carter Law Offices can be your effective advocate to ensure that you are treated fairly.
