More details to this question:
My boyfriend and I went to go apply for an apartment we tried giving our money order for our credit check but they did not want to receive it . When went ahead and summited everything they asked for and met the requierements . But went ahead and was denied , when asked why they wouldn't give us an answer . Before hand we visited sister properties and had a rude encounter with one of the employees and filed a complaint which makes us think that's why we where denied . I have proof my credit check was ran and still have no idea why we where denied . I feel our fair housing act was discriminated . Can we do anything about it ?

Dear Anoymous,

If you believe you have been the victim of housing discrimination, I would encourage you to contact the Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana (FHCCI) and discuss your situation with one of their knowledgeable staff.  Here is a link to the FHCCI's website:

Report Abuse
Discrimination occurs when a person or group of people are treated differently as a result of some personal characteristic, such as age, gender, skin color, disability or national origin. A number of federal laws ban discrimination against certain groups (known as "protected classes") in a variety of settings, including on the job and in housing. State and local laws often reinforce these bans and make it illegal to discriminate against classes not protected under federal laws. If you feel as if you've been discriminated against, talk to a law firm or attorney with experience handling discrimination claims. There are legally proscribed processes for addressing various types of discrimination, and your lawyer will be able to guide you through the complaint resolution process.
