The Oregon Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in mortgage lending practices based on factors such as race, color, religion, ***, national origin, familial status, disability, or source of income. This means that lenders cannot deny a mortgage application or offer less favorable terms to an applicant based on any of these protected characteristics.


The Act also requires lenders to provide equal access to mortgage loans for all qualified individuals, regardless of their background or circumstances. Lenders must treat all applicants fairly and consistently throughout the loan application process, from initial inquiry to final approval or denial.


Overall, the Oregon Fair Housing Act aims to ensure equal opportunities for all individuals to access housing and mortgage lending services, without facing discrimination or unfair treatment. Lenders must comply with these regulations to promote fair and equitable access to housing for all Oregon residents.
