The Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended by the Fair Housing Amendment Act of 1988, provides civil rights protection to applicants and tenants of rented or leased housing and purchasers of residential dwelling units. These rights are also included in Chapter 515. Hawaii Revised Statues which further expands the protection provided by State law.

Together, Federal and State laws, prohibit housing discrimination based on a person's RACE, COLOR, RELIGION, ANCESTRY/NATIONAL ORIGIN, SEX, FAMILIAL STATUS, PHYSICAL OR MENTAL DISABILITY, MARITAL STATUS, AGE, HIV INFECTION OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY. These are called the "protected classes."

Moreover, we will not establish discriminatory terms or conditions in the purchase or rental of housing, deny that housing is available, or show any preference or limitation based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national original when advertising that the property is available.

Renter's Rights

As someone seeking to rent an apartment, home or condo, 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, full and equal use and enjoyment of the rental property, reasonable accommodations in rules, practices and procedures for persons with disabilities, the ability to make reasonable modifications to the unit and/or common areas if needed because of disability, and to be free from harassment or intimidation for exercising your fair housing rights.
