Austria: Equality on the Housing Market

April 19th 2018

Discrimination in the housing market is forbidden, and we all have the right to an adequate standard of living. Race/Ethnic Origin and Gender cannot be used as reasons to deny someone a home.

The Ombud for Equal Treatment has prepared a short guide on how to report discrimination in the housing market.
They encourage people to document the situation as quickly as possible, such as throught the Ombud’s app for reporting discrimination and are generallyencouraged to contact the Ombuds’ office for advice and support to deal with this matter.

Further information available here in German.
