Equal Housing Opportunity

Equal Housing Opportunity

Property owners/managers are subject to the Federal Fair Housing Act, which prohibits "any preference, limitation, or discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin, or intention to make such preference, limitation or discrimination."

AHRN.com supports Equal Housing Opportunity. Property owners/managers utilizing the AHRN.com system are encouraged to follow appropriate guidelines to comply with all federal and local guidelines. Renters are hereby informed that all property rental offers are available on an equal opportunity basis.

Property Owner's & Manager's Responsibilities

Property owners/managers have a responsibility and a requirement under the law not to discriminate in the rental of property on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. Agents in a rental transaction are prohibited by law from discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. They are prohibited from complying with a request from the property owner/manager to act in a discriminatory manner in the lease or rental. Moreover, a property owner/manager cannot establish discriminatory terms or conditions in the purchase or rental, deny that housing is available, or advertise that the property is available only to persons of a certain race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.

AHRN had all the information we needed. We were stationed overseas and used this site to help us find a home in a short amount of time. I will definitely use it again with our next PCS. Thank you
