Did you know that you have a right to choose housing – free from discrimination?

The goal of this study is to identify whether barriers to fair housing choice exist in Oakland County; so, your input is very important.

Fair housing laws apply to rental housing, homes for sale, advertising, home loans and home insurance.  Federal and state fair housing acts prohibit discrimination in housing based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, disability, age, height, weight and marital status.

The Oakland County Community & Home Improvement Division can assist residents in cases of suspected housing discrimination. Inquiries may be directed to a housing counselor at (248) 858-1891.
