Housing Protection

If you are looking to buy or rent a home, it is against the law for anyone to deny you housing because of race, age, children, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, religion or AIDS. The Santa Monica City Attorney's Office takes complaints and answer questions about possible violations of the Fair Housing laws in Santa Monica. If you believe you've been discriminated against for any illegal reason, contact the Santa Monica City Attorney's Office to find out more about your rights.
