I rent a house from my mother and her husband. After learning that i suffer from Bipolar Disorder her husband, my landlord, has been rude and made several derogatory remarks about it. today i was informed that he would not renew the lease we have on the house. though my wife and I have never missed a payment and keep it very clean and well kept provided we have 3 children.
You may have a claim under the American's with Disabilities Act. Your remedy probably is money, and probably is the difference between what you are paying now and what you wind up paying for an equivalent place to live. Maybe the cost of moving. And possibly attorney fees. You need to talk to a disabilities lawyer to find out for sure.
A claim for not renewing the lease will be difficult.
I disclaim everything and make no represention of the applicability or accuracy of anything I said here. You are not my client; i am not your attorney. I thought about making this disclaimer as a poem and quickly decided not to do so. Robert Frost can sleep easy.
