Although an oral tenancy agreement is not particularly safe or intelligent for landlords or tenants, it is important to understand that it is still a legally binding contract and that tenants and landlords or legal protection rights are still in place. The contract may also contain information about your landlord`s repair obligations. Your landlord`s repair obligations depend on the type of lease. Check your lease – it could give you more rights than your basic rights under the law. Hello I could really do with some advice, I hope you can 🙁 to help.

Under federal law, it is illegal for a lessor to discriminate against you on the basis of one of the various protected characteristics, including race, national origin, disability, age and marital status. This means that the landlord cannot refuse you rent because you have children under the age of 18 and you are also prohibited from listing discriminatory preferences in a rental ad. Similarly, for discriminatory reasons, a lessor cannot act to terminate the lease.
