Unlawful discrimination

Massachusetts law prohibits discrimination in housing.

Massachusetts law prohibits discrimination in housing on the basis of race, religion, national origin, age, ancestry, military background or service, sex, sexual preference, marital status, blindness, deafness, or the need of a guide dog, except owner-occupied two family dwellings (M.G.L. c. 151B, § 4). No landlord can refuse to rent an apartment because an individual receives a rental subsidy, because the apartment contains lead, or, with some exceptions, because they have children.
