Quoted from Housing and Urban Development website (emphasis added):

Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Fair Housing Act), as amended, prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status (including children under the age of 18 living with parents or legal custodians, pregnant women, and people securing custody of children under the age of 18), and handicap (disability).

That's federal law.

There is an exception in the law if you have 4 units or lessat one address and you (the owner) is living in one of the units. In that case, the federal laws do not apply and you are free to discriminate against children, women, etc.

She's not discriminating. She's looking for a handyman to trade some work for rent.

I believe steph's question is "why not a handywoman?"

And I was pointing out that such laws do not apply if you are renting a unit in your own home.

How much would it be without the handywork? Or are you only looking for that? I have a friend coming down in 2 weeks - he is a man but won't have time to do things around the house, and is in need of a place...
