CAA’s Code for Equal Housing Opportunity

We, the members of the California Apartment Association, support the spirit and intent of all local, state, and federal fair housing laws for all residents without regard to color, race, religion, sex, marital status, mental or physical disability, age, familial status, sexual orientation, or national origin. We believe that equal opportunity can best be accomplished through effective leadership, education, and the mutual cooperation of owners, managers, and the public. Therefore, as members of the California Apartment Association, we agree to abide by the following provisions of this Code for Equal Housing Opportunity:

  • We agree that in the rental, lease, sale, purchase, or exchange of real property, owners and their employees have the responsibility to offer housing accommodations to all persons on an equal basis.

  • We agree to set and implement fair and reasonable rental housing rules and guidelines, and will provide equal and consistent services throughout our residents’ tenancy.

  • We agree that we have no right or responsibility to volunteer information regarding the racial, creed, or ethnic composition of any neighborhood, and we do not engage in any behavior or action that would result in “steering.”

  • We agree not to print, display, or circulate any statement or advertisement that indicates any preference, limitations, or discrimination in the rental or sale of housing.
