Can the CCR's of A Housing Association Prevent Children Under 18 From Living There?
The Fair Housing Act prevents many types of discrimination in housing. It prohibits discrimination against families with children under 18. That's considered discrimination based on familial status.
For example, rather than saying, 'Children may not play in the driveway,' the rules should state, 'Persons may not play in the driveway.' A pool rule, rather than saying, 'People under the age of X must be accompanied by a person over the age of Y,' should state state, 'If you're under 48 inches tall, you must be accompanied by a person over 48 inches tall.'
