Nevada Sexual Harassment Lawyers - Landlords Sexual Harassment of Tenants

In this incredibly difficult time there are people out there who seek to take advantage. Advantage of people who are in a precarious position. Our office has been getting calls regarding landlords who respond to tenants request for help by asking for sexual favors in exchange for rent. These landlords are preying on their tenants and seeking to take advantage of people already in a tough situation.

The Fair Housing Act specifically prohibits discrimination of this nature. According to Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended by Congress in 1988 in enactment of the Federal Fair Housing Act, prohibits discrimination in the provision of housing and housing-related services based on race color, religion, national origin, sex (gender), familial status (presence of children under the age of 18), and handicap. Nevada state law also includes protections based on ancestry, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression. Fair housing laws apply to all types of housing and housing- related transactions, including rental, sales, lending, insurance, and advertising. Any entity that controls housing choice, including public housing authorities, homeowner associations, and agencies administering housing funds, is subject to the provisions of state and federal fair housing laws.

Landlords cannot discriminate against their tenants (gender) by sexually harassing them when their tenants cannot meet rent. If you are a victim of this it is imperative you report it immediately. Your landlord cannot evict you for reporting sexual harassment and if your landlord attempts to retaliate, more severe penalties can be applied in the civil courts.
