Equal Housing Opportunity
The Fair Housing Act prohibits "any preference, limitation, or discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin, or intention to make such preference, limitation or discrimination" in connection with any aspect of a residential real estate transaction. Muskegon County Habitat for Humanity (through its website, social media pages and email correspondences) encourages and supports the equal housing practices of the Fair Housing Act in the conduct of its business and we encourage users of our sites to follow appropriate guidelines to comply with the Federal Housing Act, as well as any applicable state and local regulations. All potential homeowners are hereby informed that all homeownership offers are available on an equal opportunity basis.
POTENTIAL Homeowner Rights
As someone seeking a home, you have the right to expect that housing will be available to you without discrimination or other limitations based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. This includes the right to expect equal professional service, the opportunity to consider a broad range of housing choices, no discriminatory limitations on communities or locations of housing, no discrimination in the pricing or financing of housing, reasonable accommodations in rules, practices and procedures for persons with disabilities, and to be free from harassment or intimidation for exercising your fair housing rights.
