I have not read the Fair Housing Act, and as Mike suggests, it may g of some help to you.  I suggest that you contact the Housing and Urban Development office in your area.  Here is the link:


I also would think that the laws governing the non-renewal of a lease are subject to local or state laws.  Perhaps there is a rule that they have to give you some amount of notice.  You might ask the HUD office for that information as well, or a referral to the applicable local or state agency to provide you with more information.

>From a quick look at the Title III regulations of the ADA, which applies to places of public accommodations,  housing is exempted,  but again, your best bet is to contact HUD.

I am suddenly having my lease terminated and they will not tell me why.  They say they are not obligated to tell me.  Is this really true?  Also, in looking for a new apt, several complexes say they can't fill out my application for me.  Isn't this a reasonable accommodation of the ADA?  Is there someone who can tell me chapter and verse of the ADA that speaks to housing issues, particularly filling out applications?  I seem to be hitting brick walls all over the place.  Maybe if I lived in San Francisco or Berkeley they'd know better???

understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them.
