HB20-1332: Prohibit Housing Discrimination Source Of Income

Concerning prohibitions on discrimination in housing based on the source of income.

SESSION: 2020 Regular Session
SUBJECT: Housing
HB20-1332: Prohibit Housing Discrimination Source Of Income

PASSED: SENT TO THE GOVERNOR FOR SIGNATURE ON 6/19

BILL SUMMARY:

The bill adds discrimination based on the source of income as a type of unfair housing practice. “Source of income” is defined to include any source of money paid directly, indirectly, or on behalf of a person, including income from any lawful profession or from any government or private assistance, grant, or loan program.

A person is prohibited from refusing to rent, lease, show for rent or lease, or transmit an offer to rent or lease housing based on a person’s source of income. In addition, a person cannot discriminate in the terms or conditions of a rental agreement against another person based on the source of income, or based upon the person’s participation in a 3rd-party contract required as a condition of receiving public housing assistance. A person cannot include in any advertisement for the rent or lease of housing any limitation or preference based on the source of income, or to use representations related to a person’s source of income to induce another person to rent or lease property. The restrictions do not apply to a landlord with 3 or fewer rental units.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
