    If a leasing manager of a subsidy apartment out of state won't return calls or mail out a application is that a fair housing issue?

    I hear refusing to rent to someone in my current state is discrimination. I'm not sure if it is down south.

    I once applied for the apartment last year but had car trouble so couldnt move there. A nicd, helpful assistant manager left this year that worked there last year.

    No.

    Did somebody say to you "I refuse to rent to you because you are___________"?

    No?

    Didn't think so.

    I wouldn't want to waste time on an out-of-state applicant who blew me off the prior year, especially if I have other applicants who haven't blown me off.

    Refusing to rent to someone in your current state may be discrimination, but it's not ILLEGAL discrimination.
