Under the federal Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 (42 USC 3604(f)), it is unlawful for a person to discriminate in the sale or rental of real property based on disability.  This decision holds that to invoke the act’s protection, the disabled person must show he bought or rented the premises or tried to.  Rental for this purchase requires an exchange of some consideration for the right to occupy the property.  Plaintiff didn’t satisfy that requirement.  He was a holdover in a city-run low rent mobilehome park, staying on in the space his father had earlier rented from the city.  Plaintiff himself never signed, or was even mentioned in, a lease for the space and never paid the city anything to stay there.  He simply held onto the space, over the city’s protests, after his father died.  Since plaintiff provided no consideration for oocupying the space, he could not establish that the city had discriminated against him in the rental of that space and so failed to state a claim under section 3604.
