Equal Opportunity. It behooves us to mention that landlords may be subject to a variety of anti-discrimination laws, including the federal Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin in the sale, rental, or advertising of dwellings, in the provision of brokerage services, or in the availability of residential real estate transactions. According to regulations promulgated by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (also known as HUD), this means that IULiving customers who are not exempt from the act may not make, print, or publish, or cause to be made, printed or published, any notice, statement, or advertisement with respect to the sale or rental of a dwelling that indicates any preference, limitation or discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin, or an intention to make any such preference, limitation or discrimination.

We leave it to you to navigate your way through the maze of federal, state, and local laws and to determine which ones, if any, may apply to you. Of course, this doesn't mean we are washing our hands of the matter. Here at IULiving, we urge you to play it safe by not saying anything that could even remotely be construed as relating to a protected class of people. We also note that the number of protected classes in the world is constantly expanding. We try our best to keep our eyes open for customer content that runs afoul of anti-discrimination laws, but it ain't easy reviewing thousands of listings each and every day. Nonetheless, you can rest assured that if we ever find something that crosses the line, we will have it removed. In the meantime, we gladly claim the benefit of all protections extended to us under section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act of 1996, as applied in Chicago Lawyers' Committee For Civil Rights Under Law, Inc. v. craigslist, Inc., 519 F. 3d 666 (7th cir. 2008).

If you should find a listing that appears to violate any anti-discrimination law or that otherwise seems inappropriate, offensive, or uncivilized, we encourage you to bring it to our attention.
