Fair housing laws were enacted to ensure everyone has equal access to the housing of their choice. Fair housing laws apply to housing providers (landlords), but also real estate brokers, mortgage lenders, homeowner association, and others. The State of Colorado was the first in the nation to pass statewide fair housing laws, barring discrimination in housing in 1959, nine years before the signing of the federal Fair Housing Act. Colorado’s Fair Housing laws apply to all housing whether for sale, rent, lease, or transfer of ownership. Colorado’s fair housing laws apply to housing related transactions, e.g. appraisals, mortgage lending, refinancing, etc.
