The Hartford housing discrimination lawyers at the Szilagyi & Daly law firm have years of experience managing Connecticut landlord discrimination, housing disputes and tenant disputes involving housing litigation defense in Connecticut.

Hartford Landlord Defense Lawyer

The Connecticut housing discrimination attorney professionals at Szilagyi & Daly have in-depth experience handling the full spectrum of defense work in Connecticut for the Housing Authority Insurance Group, which provides insurance coverage to public housing authorities all over the U.S. The Hartford landlord defense attorney professionals regularly defend against claims relating to:

  • Slip-and-falls
  • Trip-and-falls
  • Fire damage
  • Defects on premises
  • Employment discrimination and other employment claims
  • Defamation claims
  • Fair housing discrimination

Because many public housing authorities have their own police departments, attorneys at the firm also defend public housing agencies against lawsuits alleging false arrest, excessive use of force, wrongful death and more. In addition, the Hartford law firm of Szilagyi & Daly handles a considerable amount of work for public housing authorities that are not connected to insurance companies. Connecticut housing discrimination lawyer professionals at the firm both write and review policy for clients to ensure that they are in compliance with state and federal law.

Fair Housing Discrimination Claims

According to the Federal Fair Housing Act, U.S. citizens have a right to the home or apartment of their choice, without a thought to their race, color, religion, sex, origin or disability. The law prohibits any discriminatory actions that deny tenants their right to housing, including: being refused rent or purchase, limited on neighborhoods, denied loans or insurance or offered substandard conditions, among other actions.

Fair housing discrimination can occur throughout the housing process, ranging from housing availability to pricing and even insurance. If a tenant has been discriminated against in Hartford county or anywhere in Connecticut, he or she has the right to file a complaint by contacting the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) or the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO). However, not all Connecticut housing discrimination claims brought against landlords have merit. Without proper representation, landlords may needlessly pay substantial fines.

The Hartford landlord defense attorney professionals of Szilagyi & Daly are skilled in recognizing frivolous claims and in representing public housing authorities against claims relating to alleged discriminatory action by landlords in Connecticut. In addition, one of the firm’s Connecticut housing discrimination attorneys, Tucker G. McWeeny, has extensive experience working for the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO).
