Simply enough, is it illegal to not rent to someone based on their current profession?

1 Answer 1


It is almost totally legal. Federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status, and Ohio law (ORC 4112) does extends the prohibition to ancestry and military status. So if the reason is "she's (not) a soldier", it's illegal, otherwise it is legal.

    Awesome! Thank you, great to know. I have made a habit of avoiding renting to lawyers. They seem like trouble. Apr 10, 2018 at 23:23
