Fair Housing Laws
All persons must have access to housing without any differentiation in the terms and conditions because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, handicap, or veteran or familial status. Fair housing laws also require that the same criteria be applied to families with children that are applied to adults. A landlord cannot charge a different amount of rent or security deposit because one or more of the tenants are children. The rental of rooms or units is exempted in an owner-occupied one to four-family dwelling where a real estate broker or salesperson is not involved. Upon listing a unit with an agent, a landlord loses the right to specify a preference: i.e. “males only.”
It is our goal to provide quality housing for qualified tenants; and we seek to optimize the rental experience for both landlords and tenants. Our services include:
By careful screening of prospective tenants we hope to minimize the risks associated with renting properties.
After the review process has been completed, the findings are submitted to the landlord for review and final approval.
Landlords must contact their town to ascertain what the rental requirements may be. If you need help with this, we do have most town ordinances on file. For example, the Town of Barnstable requires all rental units to be registered with the Board of Health. This includes in-law and basement apartments. Shoreland Realty Group does not handle the brokerage of illegal units.
