Filing a Charge of Discrimination
Nevada Equal Rights Commission
Nevada law prohibits
discrimination in housing because of race, color, religion, sex, sexual
orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, national origin,
or familial status. Discrimination may involve the availability of housing, lease terms, security
deposits, privileges of residency, purchase terms, interest rates or insurance rates. Landlords must
also make reasonable accommodations for tenants with disabilities and must allow disabled tenants
to make reasonable alterations to the unit at the tenantís expense.
Remedies for housing discrimination under state law are different than federal remedies.
Contact the Nevada Equal Rights Commission to file a complaint or for more information.
The federal Fair Housing Act also prohibits discrimination in housing based on race,
color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and familial status. Contact the
US Department of Housing and Urban Affairs (HUD) at 1-800-347-3739 or at
for additional information about the protections under federal law.
