Fair Housing Commission

Enforcing fair rental practices and protecting renters from unsafe housing conditions.

Fair Housing Commission

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.
