16 Racial Discrimination
6. Discrimination when renting or buying a house or flat
It is against the law for an estate agent or landlord to discriminate against you or harass you when they are selling or letting property. So, for example, an estate agent could not refuse to show you a property because of your colour, nor could a landlord refuse to let a house to a black family for the same reason. It is also against the law for landlords to discriminate racially in the way they treat tenants. The law applies to business premises, too.
If you are a council or housing association tenant and you are racially harassed by other tenants, you should tell the council or housing association. Many organisations have policies to protect tenants against harassment. They may take out an 'injunction’ through the courts to get the people to stop harassing you, or they may be able to evict them.
