On the sole basis of sex?
It seems contrary to every other business dealings
Perhaps you could try taking them on a date first before propositioning them? j/k duke!
No, I see alot of CL postings for roommates and when I inquire, I get told
"no thanks, we are looking for a female only"
Happens more than once with both guys and girls posting the ads
Doesn't seem right
No, I don't think landlords can, but if it is just someone subletting a room or looking for a roommate, they can choose, or not choose, whomever they want.
That's pretty much right.
Colorado law ... yes you can deny a roommate on their sex, religion, smoking habits etc. As a landlord you cannot.
I have a hard time believing that a landlord can't deny someone a room because of their smoking habbits. A landlord can declare his house/room/appartment/etc to be smoke free.
On the other hand duke just needs to grow a pair [of breasts]. That will solve all problems.
I believe they can declare the unit smoke free, but they can't outright say no to a tenant because they smoke. Just like a hotel doesn't say a smoker cannot stay there, they make rules that state you cannot smoke in their hotel. I can pull the law in a bit if it's critical to know for a fact. That's up to dubebound.
Depends on the state. I'm pretty sure it's illegal in NY, for instance -- at least to state a preference in the ad. If you show the place to both genders, who's to say you selected the roommate based on gender in the end?
Found this on CL:
If she is smokin HOT according to me. My god I'll accept her into my apt in a split second just as I would hump her in a split second if she asked me to. I like to think its likely to happen if they live in the apt.
It's strictly a matter of personal bias and not a legal issue concerning the process by which one chooses a room mate. And even if the law says you cannot discriminate in advertising that does not stop the individual seeking the potential room mate from discriminating during the face to face interview process.
I bet you get all the girls
And there you have the #1 reason a house with women in it might be less than receptive to an unknown male looking for a room.
