Fair housing refers to the laws and rules governing the rights of all equal access to housing. The Federal Fair Housing act is governed by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In addition, there are state laws expanding on the federal laws. The classes of people protected by Fair Housing are as follows:
- National Origin
- Familial status
South Dakota adds two categories:
It is unlawful for an owner (or representative of an owner) to refuse to sell, rent or lease any property; to treat people differently in the terms or conditions of any sale, rental or lease; to ask questions, make records, print signs or advertise in a manner that discriminates on the basis of those protected classes.
Because of the heavy fines and legal fees accompanying a fair housing violation, it is best that all communication with Residents go through our office.

I had the opportunity of working with Real Property Management over the course of a year as a tenant of one of their managed properties in Sioux Falls, SD. They were more than accommodating and extremely helpful whenever we had an issue. We were always treated as a first priority. Based on firsthand experience, I would highly recommend them to any property owners looking for a top-notch property management team!
