NOLO self help law has a page on this does-the-federal-fair-housing-act-apply-your-rental-property. If you have additional concerns, suggest you call the local housing authority.

You can not discriminated on religious, race, sexual preference, handicap, etc. You may refuse due to Credit, employment history, rental history. This is a good rule of thumb to follow.

That all depends ... If you are a land-lord and have multiple dwellings. Or if you only own one dwelling and for room-mate ONLY. The FEDERAL fair housing laws do NOT include some owners of single family homes: A single family home is owned by a private person and rented without the use of a real estate broker or discriminatory advertising. I hope this helps... Janet Scanlon, Licensed Realtor. You can google the Federal Fair Housing Act laws for your individual state.
