The Federal Fair Housing Act further prohibits discrimination in advertising, real estate brokerage, lending, and some other services associated with residential transactions against anyone based on their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or familial status.

The law applies to most sales, rentals, and exchanges of residential property. This includes houses, apartments, condominiums and cooperatives, rental mobile homes and their sites, boarding houses, dormitories, and vacant land if it's offered for the construction of residential buildings.

While the Civil Rights Act applied to all property (real and personal), the Federal Fair Housing Act only applies to housing and land for housing. The Federal Fair Housing Act included a provision allowing state and local government entities to pass laws that would create even higher standards. State laws can include additional restrictions. Make sure you understand your state's specific fair housing legislation, as each state differs slightly.

Status treatment as it affected different cultures and ancestry is documented from the time of the Roman Empire through the first colonial settlements in the early 1600s. This course will help the real estate professional have a better understanding of fair housing laws. Included are summations of the United States civil rights acts and activities to the current time.
