You are protected against unlawful housing discrimination on the basis of your marital status—that is, whether you are married, unmarried, divorced or single. It is illegal to discriminate against someone based on his or her marital status. Marital status is a protected category under the Delaware fair housing laws.
In Delaware, if you are denied an opportunity to rent a home or apartment—or given false information about a rental or sale, or denied or charged more for a mortgage or property insurance—because of your marital status, you are a victim of illegal housing discrimination. It is also illegal for landlords or other housing providers to treat current tenants and residents or their guests unfavorably because of their marital status.
If you believe you were discriminated against because of your marital status, file a complaint.
