The credit report is especially important because it will indicate whether a particular person has a history of paying rent or bills late, has gone through bankruptcy, has been convicted of a crime or has ever been evicted. How Can a Landlord Avoid Discrimination Lawsuits When Choosing a Tenant?  A valid occupancy policy limiting the number of people per rental unit—one that is clearly tied to health and safety—can also be a legal basis for refusing tenants.  To protect every American's right to be treated fairly and to help people find adequate housing, Congress and state legislatures passed laws prohibiting discrimination, most notably the federal Fair Housing Acts.

MARK TWAIN If you are a reasonable person and your neighbor is driving you wiggy with noise, the neighbor is probably violating a noise law. Page 2/9 Do I Have Any Legal Recourse Against a Noisy Neighbor?  Almost every community prohibits excessive, unnecessary and unreasonable noise, and police enforce these laws.  To find out what your town's noise ordinance says, ask at the public library or the city attorney's office.  For a court order telling somebody to stop doing something, you'll have to sue in regular court.

In addition, some state and local laws prohibit discrimination based on a person's marital status or sexual orientation. On the other hand, landlords are allowed to select tenants using criteria that are based on valid business reasons, such as requiring a minimum income or positive references from previous landlords, as long as these standards are applied equally to all tenants. Examples of Housing Discrimination The Fair Housing Act and Amendments prohibit landlords from taking any of the following actions based on race, religion or any other protected category: advertising or making any statement that indicates a preference based on group characteristic, such as skin color falsely denying that a rental unit is available setting more restrictive standards, such as higher income, for certain tenants refusing to rent to members of certain groups refusing to accommodate the needs of disabled tenants, such as allowing a guide dog, hearing dog or service dog setting different terms for some tenants, such as adopting an inconsistent policy of responding to late rent payments, or terminating a tenancy for a discriminatory reason.
