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.

The commission:

  • Enforces the City’s Fair Housing Ordinance.
  • Ensures rental properties are safe, healthy, and in good condition.
  • Verifies that landlords have necessary rental licenses and certificates.
  • Educates tenants and landlords on their rights and responsibilities.
  • Connects landlords and tenants to services and assistance.

We believe rental housing that works for everybody makes Philadelphia a better place to live.
