What is Fair Housing? Fair housing is your right under the law to compete equally for housing, without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, family status, genetic information or any other protected class. Fair housing is a right, not a privilege. Federal law prohibits housing discrimination based on protected classes such as your race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, or disability. 

Wakulla County supports fair housing. To find out how fair housing laws protect you when applying for a residential mortgage loan, please view this Fair Lending Guide.
