Gay tenant awarded £3.5k

A recent case involving a gay tenant highlights the obligations on landlords to treat all their tenants with respect.

The case involved a Belfast tenant who alleged his landlord had discriminated against him because of his sexual orientation. The tenant eventually accepted a settlement of £3,500 after taking his case to the Equality Commission.

The full details of the case are contained in this article but it does highlight the need for landlords to act professionally when dealing with their tenants.

Landlords be's only fair & it also makes good business sense.
