If you feel you have been a victim of housing discrimination, a lawsuit is certainly an option for you. But you need to take it seriously. Housing discrimination takes place when you are refused housing on the basis of your race, your sexual orientation, whether or not you are disabled or if you are pregnant. In addition to being refused housing, you may be terminated from employment for taking action against discrimination.
A housing discrimination lawsuit occurs when a landlord refuses to rent or give housing benefits to certain applicants based on their race, gender, national origin, religious beliefs, etc. If you feel that you have experienced this type of discrimination, it is important that you file a lawsuit immediately so that you can recoup your losses and obtain justice for what you have lost. In some cases, African American tenants are being discriminated against in rental housing by landlords because of their race. This can be frustrating, but filing a lawsuit will help protect you from further harassment from the landlord.
If you have filed a housing discrimination lawsuit against the apartment complex, house, condo corporation, management company, etc, you should immediately make sure that the landlord will respond to your complaints. You should then follow up with them within forty-five days to see if they have given you any response. If not, you should contact the Department of Justice, Department of Housing and Urban Development, or the attorney general of your state to file a complaint against the landlords. You should keep track of the complaint number so that you can file a complaint with the appropriate agency.

Keep track of the complaint number so that you can file a complaint with the appropriate agency. The more information you provide to the landlord and the quicker you receive your complaint the better.
