All real estate advertised herein is subject to the federal Fair Housing Act, which makes it illegal to advertise “any preference, limitation, or discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), handicap, familial status, or national origin, or intention to make such preference, limitation, or discrimination.”
It is the policy of Bentley Real Estate to comply with Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, (commonly known as the Fair Housing Act) by ensuring that all real estate advertised is available to all persons without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, disability, familial status, and sex.
Bentley Real Estate understands further that local ordinances may include other protected classes. This policy means that among other things, our company, and all of our agents and employees that have responsibility dealing with any real estate must not discriminate because of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, familial status, sex, or additional protected classes as instituted on a state or local level.
