Is there any way to penalize a private landlord for refusing to rent to blacks or muslims?
He is very vocal about the fact that he will not rent to blacks or muslims.
In his ads when he is between tenents at a given property, he says "Must be White or Asian, and non-muslim."
I know it would be one thing if it were an apartment complex, but is there actually any way to force him to rent a private single family home to someone?
I asked this before any people said prospective tenants could sue, but that requires actually having damages, correct?
His rentals are in no way the cheapest, so I can't imagine anyone could make a case that they were financially harmed by not renting his house in particular.
I did look up Virginia's fair housing act on virginia.gov and saw all the prohibited actions, but I didn't see any penalties spelled out.
