William Sheridan

 
This week, fellow Rotarian William Sheridan, updated us on Colorado‚Äôs Discrimination laws as they pertain to rental properties. Here is a short summary:
 
Landlords cannot discriminate against tenants based on any of the Protected classes that include ancestry, creed, marital status, sexual orientation, and source of income.

Many of us have heard of these protected classes, but his presentation sparked extensive discussion about how easy it is to get sued for a violation and expensive it can be for a landlord to be sued for potential violations of these laws. 

In short, his advice if you are renting property is to have a written set of guidelines and stick to them.
