I have three boys 5,3,&2 but no one wants to rent to me. My boys are very good we used to live in a one bedroom but I didn't like the type of people that lived there doing what they do around my kids. We would still be there.

NY
I just want to find a place for my kids to call home. They can do their homework,eat their meals,brush their teeth and have room to be able to do activities as a family

Familial status discrimination is most common and most commonly misunderstood. Many housing
providers believe it is perfectly legal to say we won t accept children but it s not; it s a violation of the
fair housing laws.
FAMILIAL STATUS DEFINED
Having in the household: one or more individuals who have not attained the age of eighteen years
being domiciled with: (1) a parent or other person having legal custody of such individual(s); or (2)
the designee of such parent or other person having such custody, with the written permission of such
parent or other person. Also protected under familial status is any person who is pregnant or is in the
process of securing legal custody of any individual who has not attained the age of 18 years.
(PA Human Relations Act)
COMMON WAYS IN WHICH FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN ARE DISCRIMINATED:
flat out refusal to rent to families with children--No Children Policy;
requiring families to live in specific buildings of an apartment complex, in specific
sections of a building, or on the first floor of a building;
demanding that children of opposite sex have separate bedrooms;
refusing to rent based on perceived risks and dangers of the property (such as lead
paint, steep steps, located near train tracks);
inquiring about pregnancy;
inquiring about childcare arrangements;
inquiring about the ages of the occupants &/or how many will be children; as well as
charging extra for children.
ILLEGAL OPPOSITE SEX/SEPARATE BEDROOM POLICIES
The result of opposite sex/separate bedrooms policies can be devastating on families with children
forcing them into larger apartments at a greater expense or limiting the field of available apartments
unnecessarily. For example, families with a boy and a girl would be forced into looking for a three
bedroom apartment, not a two, or forced to look elsewhere when only two bedrooms are available.
Mandating that boys and girls have separate bedrooms is illegal and a violation of the fair housing laws.
