Fair Housing refers to a set of federal, state, and local laws that protect people from illegal housing discrimination.
These laws prohibit housing discrimination based on a person's race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, source of income, familial status (children in the household under age 18, anticipated presence of children through adoption, pregnancy etc.), marital status, or physical or mental disability.
People protected by Fair Housing laws against discrimination are said to belong to a "protected class." Oregon also successfully created another protected class for domestic violence survivors.
ORS Chapter 90 deals in the laws for all residential tenancies. There are two main sections. The first half of ORS Chapter 90 Landlord-Tenant laws (ORS 90.100 - 90.493) generally (with a few exceptions) covers all residential tenancies (apartments, park and marina residents, subleases, etc.).
Being knowledgeable in federal, state and local laws is vital for doing property management. ORS 90 is a large piece of that, more information can be found here: ORS 90
