As a renter, you have certain rights. From the moment you fill out an apartment rental application, you have certain federally protected rights. This means that if you feel a landlord rejected your rental application and violated your rights by doing so, you may be able to take legal action. Your tenants' rights include protection from discrimination and the right to live in a safe home.
Congratulations to the Lopez family upon recovering $911,000 in connection with their recent habitability and lead poisoning case! Do not let unscrupulous landlords take advantage of you and your children. Safe and habitable housing is the law!
