Brevard County Fair Housing Program

It's the Law in Brevard County!

Federal Fair Housing Act and the The Florida Fair Housing Act make it illegal for anyone to refuse to rent, sell or make a housing loan to you because of the following factors:

  • Race or Color
  • Gender
  • Religion
  • Disability
  • National Origin
  • Familial Status (including children under the age of 18 living with parents or legal custodians; pregnant women and people securing custody of children under 18)

How Do You Recognize Housing Discrimination?

Based upon the above-listed factors it is against the law to:

  • Refuse to rent or sell you housing.
  • Tell you housing is unavailable when in fact it is available.
  • Show you apartments or homes in certain neighborhoods only.
  • Advertise housing to preferred groups of people only.
  • Refuse to provide you with information regarding mortgage loans, deny you a mortgage loan, or impose different terms or conditions on a mortgage loan.
  • Deny you property insurance.
  • Conduct property appraisals in a discriminatory manner.
  • Refuse to make certain modifications or accommodations for persons with a mental or physical disability, including person recovering from alcohol and substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS related illness.
  • Fail to design and construct housing in an accessible manner.
  • Harass, coerce, intimidate, or interfere with anyone exercising or assisting someone else with their fair housing rights.

If You Don't Report Discrimination, It Can't Be Stopped!

If you believe your rights have been violated, Brevard County Housing and Human Services Department is ready to help you file a complaint. You have 1 year from the date of the alleged act of discrimination to file your complaint.

You will need to provide the following information in your complaint:

  • Your name, address, and phone number where you can be reached.
  • Another contact's name, address, and phone number if the agency cannot reach you.
  • A description of what happened to you.
  • A statement telling why you believe you are being discriminated against. (e.g. on the basis of what protected class).
  • A statement of who discriminated against you with their name, title, and address.
  • A statement describing where the alleged discrimination occurred (complete address).
  • A statement as to the date the last act of discrimination occurred. Tell if the alleged discrimination is ongoing.

Brevard County will refer your complaint to the appropriate enforcement agencies.
