Before posting your advertisements on our website, please review your advertisement to be sure it is accurate, and complies with all local, state and federal laws as well as with this policy. This policy applies to all content of your advertisement, including the descriptive text and the photographs/images. We reserve the right to remove any content that we deem, in our sole discretion, to violate this policy and/or to reject the submitted advertisement.
Illegal discriminatory preferences are prohibited. Many statements containing discriminatory preference are prohibited under the Fair Housing Act and state and local laws. In any advertisement for the sale or rental of a dwelling, it is illegal to state a discriminatory preference with regard to race or color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, handicap and disability. For further guidance on the protected categories and other protections and exceptions governed by the Fair Housing Act, please review the Act as well as the publications issued by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development ("HUD") and the Department of Justice. You can contact HUD on the Internet at http://www.hud.gov/offices/fheo/index.cfm and the Department of Justice at http://www.usdoj.gov. You must also comply with the Act and all state and local laws prohibiting discrimination based on other factors, including sexual orientation, age, marital status, and source of income.
Content must be accurate. Please make sure that all information you submit is accurate and complete. If any information later becomes inaccurate or misleading, you are responsible for correcting it.
Image requirements. Photographs and images accompanying the text of your advertisement may not contain nudity, pornography, lewd references or be sexually suggestive in any way. Digital image and video files must satisfy our technical requirements.
Additional Requirements for Property Advertisements
Last Updated: January 17, 2007
Personal Information. The text of the advertisement and any accompanying images must not include property contact information, including telephone numbers, email addresses, or URLS; or other references to any other websites. This limitation prohibits inclusion of any contact information visible on a billboard or sign within the photographed property.
Expiration dates are required for limited offers. All "Specials" offered by you and advertised on our website are only permitted to be short-term promotions. Therefore, those advertisements must include an expiration date for the "special." In addition, all such "specials" must reference the specific nature of the "special" and cannot be a generic reference.
Facility Must Be Focus. While it is permissible for an individual(s) to appear in an ancillary/insignificant way within an image, the property facilities must be the dominant component of the image.
Sublease. If the property is offered as a sublease (rather than a lease), the advertisement must clearly specify that is a sublease.
