The Fair Housing Act covers “dwellings”: any building, structure, or portion of a building that is occupied or intended to be occupied or where a person intends to return. The Act applies only if the owner has an interest in four or more homes/units (e.g., An apartment building with more than four units, a single home where the landlord owns three other homes, or a house with three bedrooms being rented to three different people and where the landlord maintains his own home). Examples of dwellings covered by the Fair Housing Act: single family homes, condominiums, duplexes, multi-unit dwellings (apartments), manufactured homes, private homes, vacant land, homeless shelters, shelters for victims of domestic violence, nursing homes, assisted living facilities.
