The California housing law attorneys at the Castelblanco Law Group, A Prof. Law Corp. handle landlord-tenant disputes with genuine passion. We represent one of California’s most marginalized groups: tenants living in substandard housing. Our goal is to make building owners and managers respect your rights as tenants, regardless of race or legal status. We do this by holding owners and managers accountable when they fail to provide you with safe and healthy homes. Furthermore, this sets a precedent for housing standards, which can help minorities and low-income families in the future.
You do not need to live in fear of retaliation from a landlord. We have helped hundreds of people improve their living conditions by reviewing their living situation and identifying any unlawful actions. We know there is more to your story than just settling a landlord-tenant dispute or fixing damaged property. You want equal treatment and a decent life for you and your loved ones. Our lawyers can help you obtain monetary compensation for your emotional, physical, and property damages.
California law states that it is unlawful for a landlord or other party to discriminate against any person who is a member of a protected class. Safeguards, such as protected classes, define types of discrimination that are prohibited at the federal and state level. Residents in the state of California are protected by regulations in the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). At the federal level, the Fair Housing Act (FHA) protects civilians across the country from discrimination. The FHA is strengthened by the FEHA, which includes additional protected classes exclusively for the state of California. Combined, these acts make it illegal to discriminate in the sale, rental, or financing of housing to all protected classes.
Protected classes are race and color, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, income, disability, marital status and national origin. In addition to the protected classes, there are some other safeguards available only to residents of California:
