What housing is covered by the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA)?

Housing Discrimination Attorneys in California

The FEHA includes most residential accommodation, including homes, condominiums, flats, mobile home parks, group homes, and shelters, for sale or lease.  

Housing owners (including the government), managers, actual property brokers, mortgage lenders and organizations of homeowners are also protected. 

FEHA does not cover: (a) Refusal to rent a portion of an owner-occupied single-family house to a roomer or boarder when only one roomer or boarder is to live in the household and the owner does not publish any discriminatory notices, statements, or advertisements; and (b) stating or implying that housing is available only to persons of one sex, where sharing of living areas in a single dwelling is involved.
