About Fair Housing Law

Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s housing discrimination team fights against all types of real estate discrimination. As reflected in many published and unpublished decisions in front of New York state courts including State Supreme, Housing, Civil, and Federal courts, our team has and always will voraciously fight for our clients.

Legislation across the nation prohibits discrimination in regards to the sale, rental, or financing of property. There are several laws that have been created in order to ensure fair housing for both landlords and tenants. The Civil Rights acts of 1964 and 1968, the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, and the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 all protect tenants’ rights against discrimination. On the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability, and a plethora of other characteristics, landlords, property owners, and boards can not legally discriminate against a potential or current tenant.

Here, at Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. we fight against all forms of discrimination that remove fair housing rights from tenants. Whether it is a case of reasonable accommodation for someone in a wheelchair or a case of mental illness inhibiting a tenant from signing a contract we will protect the rights of anyone and everyone.

Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. is proud to represent or defend the underdog and litigate against claims of discrimination. We have overcome tremendous odds in court for anyone who feels they have had their fair housing rights taken away through discriminatory acts.

No matter the case, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. will stand up for justice and fight for the rights of our clients. In exposing racism, sexism, ageism and all other forms of discrimination, we work passionately and fervently to protect our clients who have been discriminated against just as we will protect against false claims of discrimination.
