Delaware fair housing laws include protections for people who are (or who are perceived to be) straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered. Under Delaware’s Fair Housing laws, it is illegal to discriminate against someone based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.
If you are denied an opportunity to buy, rent, finance or insure a home or apartment—or given false information about housing—because of your sexual orientation or your gender identity, 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 the individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity.
