We the members of the Northeast Louisiana 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 Northeast Louisiana Apartment Association, we agree to abide by allowing 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 social 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 articulate any statements or advertisement that includes any preference, limitations, or discrimination in the rental or sale of housing.
