    1. Introduction

    Title 19 of the Baltimore County Code also outlaws discrimination in financing practices. The following bases for discrimination are prohibited:

    • Race
    • Creed
    • Religion
    • Physical or Mental Disabilities
    • Color
    • Sex (including Sexual Harassment)
    • National Origin
    • Age
    • Marital Status

    The law applies to all dwellings, including mobile homes, in the County. Affected lending institutions are banks, insurance company, savings and loan association, or other organization in the business of lending money or guaranteeing loans within Baltimore County.

    2. Unlawful Acts

    These acts regarding the conditions of a loan are prohibited by the law:

    a. The fixing of down payment.
    b. Interest rate.
    c. Duration.
    d. Other terms or conditions of a loan.

    In addition, it is unlawful for public funds to be deposited in a lending institution that discriminates in this manner.

    3. Remedy

    If a person feels that he/she has been discriminated against in lending practices, he/she may file a complaint with the Baltimore County Human Relations Commission. Please see Section II of this part for a full description of the procedure for filing a complaint.


    Unless a building or community qualifies as housing for older persons, it may not discriminate based on familial status, according to the Fair Housing Act. It may not discriminate against families in which one or more children under 18 live with:

  • a parent.
  • a person who has legal custody of the children.
  • the designee of the parent or legal custodian, with the parent or custodian's written permission.
  • Familial status protection also applies to pregnant women and anyone securing legal custody of a child under 18. Housing for older persons is exempt from the law if it is occupied solely by persons who are 62 or older, or it houses at least one person who is 55 or older in at least 80% of the occupied units.


    1. Introduction

    Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. Section 794) and the Fair Housing Act, as amended in 1988 by the Fair Housing Amendments Act (42 U.S.C. Section 3601 et. seq.) define an individual with disabilities (or handicaps) as: Any person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment.

    2. Overview of the Relevant Laws

    a. Architectural Barriers Act of 1968 (42 U.S.C. 4151)

    This Act provides for the removal of architectural barriers from all Federally constructed, leased, or financed buildings.

    b. Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 794)

    The Rehabilitation Act prohibits discrimination, in Federally assisted and conducted programs, against otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities. Along with the Americans with Disabilities Act, this is the major Federal statute protecting the civil rights of persons with disabilities. Section 504 - as well as HUD rules and regulations - provide for complaint procedures regarding housing discrimination on the basis of disability. In short, treatment of the complaint parallels that for other (e.g., racial) discriminatory allegations.

    c. Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 (42 U.S.C. 3601)

    (1) Exemptions

    The Act also prohibits discriminatory housing practices based on disability and familial status. There are specified monetary penalties in cases where housing discrimination is found. This Act generally applies to dwellings intended as a residence. Exemptions are:

    (a) Rooms/units in owner-occupied dwellings for four or fewer families living independently.
    (b) Rental or sale of a single-family home by an owner who does not own more than three houses, who hasn't sold a house within one year, and who has not used a broker or agent to rent the house.

    (2) Prohibited discriminatory actions include:

    (a) Refusal to permit, at the request of a person with disabilities, reasonable modifications if necessary to allow this person full usage of the dwelling.
    (b) New construction that does not include structure and design standards.
    (c) To refuse to make reasonable accommodation in rules, policies, services, or practices, when such are necessary to allow a person with disabilities an equal opportunity to use and enjoy the housing.

    Example: A building with a "no pets" policy must allow a visually-impaired tenant to keep a guide dog.

    An apartment complex that offers tenants ample, unassigned parking must honor a request from a mobility-impaired tenant for a reserved space near his/her apartment, if necessary to assure that he/she can have access to the apartment.

    c. Requirements for New Buildings

    In buildings that were ready for first occupancy after March 13, 1991, and have an elevator and four or more units:

    (1) Public and common areas must be accessible to persons with disabilities.
    (2) Doors and hallways must be wide enough for wheelchairs.
    (3) All units must have:

  • An accessible route through the unit.
  • Accessible light switches, electrical outlets, thermostats, and other environmental controls.
  • Reinforced bathroom walls to allow later installation of grab bars.
  • Kitchens and bathrooms that can be used by people in wheelchairs.
  • If a building with four or more units has no elevator and had first occupancy after March 13, 1991, these standards apply to ground floor units only. These requirements do not replace any more stringent standards in State or Maryland or Baltimore County law. However, housingneed not be made available to a person who is a direct threat to the health or safety of others,or who currently uses illegal drugs. Enforcement mechanisms involve investigation, conciliation, administrative hearings, U. S. Department of Justice action, and civil actions in Federal Court.

    d. Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990

    This Federal Act prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in private sector employment, all public services, public accommodations, and telecommunications. For more information about the Act, please contact the Baltimore County Commission on Disabilities (410-887-3580) or the Baltimore County Human Relations Commission (410-887-5917).

    3. How Are You Affected?

    The following are commonly-asked questions regarding Fair Housing for persons with disabilities.

    a. What must a housing provider consider to assure that housing is provided as integrated?The housing for persons with disabilities must not be separate or unnecessarily segregated. Accessible units in single buildings should be located throughout the building, and not just on the first floor. In projects with multiple buildings, accessible units should be located throughout these buildings, rather than in just one or two buildings. Persons with mental disabilities should not be segregated in any one wing, floor, or building.

    b. What conditions are considered as disabilities under the law?

    (1) Alcoholism.
    (2) Autism.
    (3) Cancer.
    (4) Cerebral palsy.
    (5) Diabetes.
    (6) Drug addiction.
    (7) Emotional illness.
    (8) Epilepsy.
    (9) Heart disease.
    (10) Human Immunodeficiency Virus infection (i.e., AIDS/HIV).
    (11) Mental retardation.
    (12) Multiple sclerosis.
    (13) Muscular dystrophy.
    (14) Other orthopedic, visual, speech, and hearing impairments.

    c. If this building was built without Federal funds, does the law still apply?The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination in both public and private housing, regardless of whether or not the housing provider receives Federal funds.

    d. What is the law regarding communication with persons with disabilities?A housing provider must have an effective way to communicate with all tenants and applicants who have disabilities:

    (1) Telephone: TDD or a fax machine.
    (2) Alternate site for applicants if not accessible.
    (3) Application forms and other information in simplified language and utilize pictures or diagrams.

    e. What about the cost of housing modifications?The Fair Housing Act requires that housing providers allow tenants with disabilities to make modifications, at the tenant's expense, when such modifications are necessary. However, the provider is required to cover the cost to make existing units accessible when a project is viewed in its entirety.

    f. What about information given during the application process?A housing provider may indicate the availability of accessible units, and ask all applicants whether they wish to be considered for such units. If the person indicates this, he/she can be asked to explain and document why the accessibility features are required - even though to answer these questions may involve revealing information about a physical or mental disability (24 C.F.R. Sec. 8.27).

    g. Can a provider make the ability to live independently a term or condition of tenancy?No. Instead, the provider must rely on the tenant's ability to meet the standard obligations of tenancy, such as maintaining one's unit, to determine whether the tenant can continue to reside in that unit.

    h. When can a housing provider evict a person with disabilities who damages his/her unit and/or disturbs other tenants?The general rule is that a person with disabilities can be held to the same standards of behavior as those to which a non-disabled person is held. "Reasonable accommodation," however, may require that in some circumstances a landlord make an accommodation in the rule.



    1. Options

    Someone who believes that his/her rights against discrimination have been violated has three options in Baltimore County. S/he can file a complaint with the Baltimore County Human Relations Commission (BCHRC), the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights, or the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This section first details how to file a complaint with the BCHRC, and then with Maryland and HUD.

    2. Differences Between Filing with Baltimore County, the State of Maryland, and the U. S. Government

    State of Maryland

    The bases for discrimination complaints differs between Baltimore County and the State of Maryland. For the State of Maryland, Title 14, Subtitle 03, Chapter 4 (14.03.04) of the Code of Maryland Regulations prohibits any housing discrimination in Maryland based on the following:

  • Color
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Age
  • National Origin
  • Marital Status
  • Ancestry
  • Religion
  • Mental Disability
  • Physical Disability
  • Familial Status
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Unlike Baltimore County, the State's Fair Housing Law includes Ancestry, Familial Status, and Sexual Orientation, as bases for housing discrimination complaints. Anyone who believes that s/he is a victim of housing discrimination because of these bases should file a complaint with the State. If you are in doubt, it is advisable to contact Baltimore County (410-887-5917) or the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights (410-767-8600) for a full explanation of the covered classes.

    U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

    Of the bases covered under Baltimore County Law, only Marital Status is not covered under Federal law. Persons with discrimination complaints based on Marital Status should file a complaint with Baltimore County. If you are in doubt, it is advisable to contact Baltimore County (410-887-5917) or HUD (410-962-2520, extension 3056) for a full explanation of covered classes.



    1. Filing the Complaint

    Any person or organization experiencing any discrimination listed in the Baltimore County Code may file a written complaint with the Baltimore County Human Relations Commission. The Commission is located: Old Courthouse, Room 106, 400 Washington Avenue, Towson, Maryland 21204. You may telephone the Commission between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at 410-887-5917, or TTD 410-887-3728.

    The person filing the complaint is called the "Complainant." The complaint - which specifies the details of the alleged discrimination - must be filed within 180 days from the date of occurrence of the alleged discriminatory act and on the form provided by the Commission. When it receives the Complaint, the Commission will inform the alleged person who committed the act (the "Respondent"). Remember that retaliation against someone who has filed a housing complaint is against the law.

    2. Mediation and Pre-Determination Settlement

    Some complaints may be resolved through mediation. If both the Complainant and the Respondent agree to participate, the Commission will attempt to resolve the complaint within thirty days. The Complainant does not have to agree either to mediation or to the settlement. If the complaint is resolved, it is termed a Settlement.

    3. Investigation

    If the Complainant wishes or if mediation does not resolve the complaint, the Commission then will conduct a complete investigation to determine whether there has been a violation of the law. It will meet with witnesses for the parties, examine relevant records, and may subpoena documents and witnesses as necessary. All investigations will be completed within six months. If the investigation finds no reasonable cause of discrimination, the Complainant may appeal the decision to the Chairperson of the Commission within twenty days.

    4. Administrative Hearing

    If conciliation does not work, an Administrative Hearing will be scheduled before the Commission. The Commission will issue a written decision of its findings and order either remedies or the dismissal of the complaint.

    5. Remedies

    If after hearing all evidence, the Commission finds that discrimination has occurred, it may order many types of nonmonetary relief. This includes:

  • Sale or rental of housing.

  • Requiring employers to institute training for affected employees.

  • Requiring banks to provide financing.

  • Reinstatement or hiring of employees.

  • Other actions deemed appropriate.
  • The Commission has its orders enforced by the Baltimore County Circuit Court.

    6. Right to Appeal

    The Complainant or the Respondent may appeal the decision of the Commission within thirty days of its issuance. S/he may appeal to the Board of Appeals of the County.

    7. Right to File Charges Without Retaliation

    The Human Relations Commission protects persons filing charges and witnesses who participate in an investigation. Title 19 of the Baltimore County Code prohibits: (a) retaliation against any individual for filing a charge of discrimination, and (b) retaliation against any person who assists another in any way in a proceeding before the Commission.


    1. Introduction

    A person who feels that they are a victim of housing discrimination also may file a complaint with the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights (MCCR). Often, a person will file a complaint both with Baltimore County and with the State. This is not forbidden, and is sometimes advisable in order to expedite the complaint process. Title 14, Subtitle 03, Chapter 4 (14.03.04) of the Code of Maryland Regulations prohibits housing discrimination in the State based on:

  • Color
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Age
  • National Origin
  • Marital or Familial Status
  • Ancestry
  • Religion
  • Mental Disability
  • Physical Disability
  • Sexual Orientation
  • 2. Contacting the MCHR

    The first step in filing a housing discrimination complaint is to contact the MCCR. Someone who feels that s/he is the victim of housing discrimination (called the "Complainant") may either telephone or write the MCCR within one year of the incident. The MCCR's telephone numbers are: 410-767-8600 or 1-800-637-6247. The TTY/TDD number is 410-333-1737. A person may write the MCCR at: 6 St. Paul Street, 9th Floor, Baltimore, Maryland 21202. Upon contact, the MCHR staffer will set up an appointment with the Complainant to obtain more information about the complaint.

    3. Follow-Up

    As soon as MCCR obtains all the information about the incident from the Complainant, it contacts and gets relevant information from the person who is the subject of the complaint (called the "Respondent"). The MCCR speeds up this fact-finding process as quickly as possible. This process is quickened if the situation demands immediate action (e.g., the Complainant is subject to threat or harm). The MCCR will inform the Complainant and the Respondent in writing of its decision of whether discrimination has occurred, and it then will enforce corrective remedies.

    4. Remedies

    The MCCR can order a Respondent to make a financial payment and/or many other actions to remedy a proven discrimination problem. For example, it can issue a temporary restraining order to keep a housing unit on the market in certain circumstances. The MCCR's administrative penalties can be very costly to the person or company adjudged to be guilty of housing discrimination:

  • $10,000 fine, if the person/company has committed one prior discriminatory practice.
  • $25,000 fine, if the person/company has committed one prior discriminatory practice within the past 5 years.
  • $50,000 fine, if the person/company has committed two or more prior discriminatory practices within the past 7 years.
  • The MCCR also can negotiate other remedies as agreed between its legal counsel, the Complainant, and the Respondent. These may include actual damages and "equitable relief" in addition to the monetary fine.

    5. Anti-Retaliatory Provision

    Like Baltimore County, the MCCR is committed to ensuring that a person who makes a complaint or who supports a complaint by another not be the victim of retaliation. It is illegal to retaliate against a Complainant or someone who aids that person. The State, therefore, will prosecute immediately such action if it does occur.

    6. Anti-Intimidation

    It also is illegal to threaten or intimidate someone who has filed a discrimination complaint. For example, it is illegal to:

      * Threaten an employee with dismissal because of filing a complaint.
      * Intimidate or threaten someone who has won a discrimination complaint.
      * Harass someone who has assisted another in filing a discrimination complaint.

    For example, it is illegal to threaten someone with bodily harm who has filed a discrimination complaint. Harassing that person, by swearing and physical threats, is against the law. If you are unsure whether an action is against the law, please contact the MCCR at 410-767-8600.


    1. Introduction

    The U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is ready to help with housing discrimination. The Federal bases for Fair Housing complaints are about the same as Baltimore County, and more narrowly defined than for the State. The national Fair Housing Act forbids housing discrimination on the basis of:

  • Race
  • Color
  • National Origin
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Familial Status
  • Physical Disability
  • Mental Disability
  • In Maryland, HUD refers all discrimination complaints to the Maryland Commission on Human Relations (MCHR) for processing and investigation. Therefore, it usually is quicker to file a discrimination complaint directly with MCHR (telephone 410-767-8600) than with HUD. You may file a complaint with both agencies.

    Complaint Process

    HUD's complaint process is very similar to those of Baltimore County and the State. If someone believes his/her rights have been violated, s/he can either write HUD a letter, telephone the local HUD Office, or telephone the HUD toll-free telephone hot-line. Appropriate assistance also is available for persons with disabilities. A complaint should be filed as soon as possible, but within one year of its occurrence.

    2. What to Tell HUD

    The following information is necessary to file a complaint with HUD:

      * Name and address of the person filing the complaint (the Complainant).
      * Name and address of the person the complaint is against (the Respondent).
      * The address of other identification of the housing involved.
      * A short description of the alleged violation.
      * The date(s) of the alleged violation.

    3. Where to Write

      Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity
      U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
      451 Seventh Street, S. W., Room 5204
      Washington, D. C. 20410-2000

    4. Where to Call

    There are two telephone lines during regular business workdays (Mondays-Fridays, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) to provide assistance to anyone who wishes to file a complaint:

      Maryland State HUD Office: 410-962-2520, extension 3056.
      Toll-free hot-line: 1-800-669-9777.

    5. If the Person has Disabilities

    For persons with disabilities, HUD also provides:

      * A local TDD phone for the hearing-impaired: 410-962-0106.
      * A toll-free TDD phone for the hearing-impaired: 1-800-927-9275.
      * Interpreters.
      * Tapes and Braille materials.
      * Assistance in reading and completing forms.

    6. Confidentiality

    HUD guarantees that the confidentiality of the person making the housing discrimination complaint will be maintained.

    7. What Happens Next?

    HUD notifies the person who has complained (called the "Complainant") once it receives the complaint. Normally, HUD then also will:

    a. Notify the alleged violator of the complaint (called the "Respondent"), and permit that person to submit an answer to the complaint.

    b. Investigate the complaint and determine whether there is reasonable cause to believe the Fair Housing Act has been violated.

    c. Notify the Complainant if HUD cannot complete an investigation within 100 days of receiving the complaint.

    8. Conciliation

    After gathering the evidence and concluding that discrimination has occurred, HUD will try to reach an agreement with the Respondent. Such an agreement is called a conciliation agreement, and specifies the actions that will be taken to remove the discriminatory housing practice. However, if the agreement is violated, HUD will recommend that the U. S. Attorney General file a suit against the Respondent.

    9. For Immediate Help

    HUD may be able to assist persons in need of immediate help to stop a serious problem caused by a Fair Housing Act violation. HUD may authorize the Attorney General to go to court to seek temporary or preliminary relief, pending the outcome of the complaint.
