Fair Housing

HUD has a helpful flyer about a landlord’s duty to ensure fair housing, including when the landlord is aware of fair housing violations caused by one tenant acting against another:


CMHA encourages all tenants to report all suspected fair housing violations, including those caused by tenants.

In terms of policies, CMHA’s position has been that such behavior is a violation of the lease which the landlord should be enforcing.

For example, the lease should prohibit a tenant from breaching another tenant’s peaceful enjoyment of the neighborhood.
