Frequently Asked Questions
- I recently responded to an ad for an apartment. When I arrived to see it, I was told it had been rented. But the landlord is still advertising the unit. Can I find out if this was discriminatory?
- I have a physical disability and need to park close to my building's entrance. The manager told me that there is a waiting list for these prime spots and I have to wait my turn. Can they do this?
- I own a two-family and am trying to rent out the upstairs unit. Can I state in the ad that only single people, or a married couple, can apply? My first floor tenant likes it to be quiet.
