Rentmaster.us strongly supports Equal Housing Opportunity and we require that all users of our website adhere to the Federal Housing Act guidelines as well as their local and state regulations. All renters are informed that all rental properties are listed on an equal housing basis.

Property Manager's Responsibilities

All property owners/managers are subject to the Federal Fair Housing Act. This act prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status (including children under the age of 18 living with parents of legal custodians, pregnant women, and people securing custody of children under the age of 18), and handicap (disability). Your responsibility also requires that you cannot deny an available rental or advertise the rental based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.

Renter's Rights

As a renter looking for any type of rental property you should expect properties to be available to you without any type of discrimination or limitation based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. You should also expect there to be no discrimination in price, equal professional service, a broad range of housing choices to consider, reasonable tenant rules, provisions for persons with disabilities, and free from harassment and/or intimidation for exercising your fair house rights.
