What we do
The Fair Housing Commission (FHC) makes sure that renters have safe places to live and that landlords follow housing laws. The five-member commission and staff help people know their rights and responsibilities when it comes to renting a property.
- Enforces the City’s Fair Housing Ordinance.
- Conducts hearings on properties that are alleged to be unsafe or in poor condition.
- Verifies that landlords have necessary rental licenses and certificates.
- Educates tenants and landlords on their rights and responsibilities.
- Connects landlords and tenants to resources and assistance.
We believe rental housing that works for everybody makes Philadelphia a better place to live.
