Fair Housing Statement

Attire Real Estate's Fair Housing Statement fully supports the principles of both the Equal Opportunity Act (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964), and the Fair Housing Act (Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968), which, as amended, prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, handicap (disability), and familial status (including, but not limited to, children under the age of 18 living with parents of legal custody; people securing custody of children under the age of 18; and pregnant women).

Additionally, it is illegal under Massachusetts law to discourage a person from buying or renting a dwelling in a particular area and encourage him or her to buy or rent in another area; representing that a dwelling is not available for sale, rent or inspection when the dwelling is in fact so available; charge or quote a higher rental or sale price for a dwelling; state or provide less favorable terms for the rental or a sale of a dwelling; publish discriminatory advertising; discriminate in the granting or mortgage loan; discriminate on the basis of handicap by refusing to make reasonable accommodations in policies and services or refusing to permit reasonable modifications of dwellings; discriminate on the basis of rental subsidy recipiency by refusing to rent to subsidy recipients because of subsidy program requirements; and to refuse to rent to families with children under six because of lead paint.
