The federal Fair Housing Act makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, familial status (families with children), and disability. In addition to these classifications, California law prohibits discrimination on the basis of ancestry, marital status, sexual orientation, source of income, and other arbitrary discrimination based on personal characteristics, such as “age.”
