Massachusetts law prohibits landlords and realtors from discriminating against tenants and homebuyers based on race, color, religious creed, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, handicap (disability), sexual harassment, sexual orientation, marital status, children, retaliation, veteran status, or public assistance.
It is illegal to refuse to rent, sell, or otherwise deny housing in covered types of premises because a child or children will occupy them.
It is illegal for an owner, real estate broker, or managing agent, etc., to commit discrimination against families with children by refusing to sell or rent, or by evicting tenants, because the premises contain lead paint, plaster or accessible structural materials containing dangerous levels of lead, which the law requires to be removed or otherwise protected from exposure to children.
