Belmont County Fair Housing Commission was established by the Belmont County Board of Commissioners in 1980.

The purpose of the Commission is to insure that all persons residing in Belmont County, Ohio are treated fairly when seeking housing.  By definition, fair housing is a condition in which individuals of similar income levels in the same housing market have a like range of housing choices available to them regardless of their race, color, religion, national origin, sex, handicap, or familial status.  Fair housing treatment applies to persons seeking to lease, rent or buy a dwelling or land within the county.

Fair housing brochures, which contain various laws, duties and responsibilities of the tenant and landlord, are available to the public.

Discrimination is a violation of Federal and State Law, and penalties can be imposed upon those who willfully practice housing discrimination.
