Housing discrimination is prohibited by Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 and by the North Carolina State Fair Housing Act. In an effort to promote fair housing and to ensure the rights of housing discrimination victims are protected, the City of Lexington has procedures in place for receiving and resolving housing discrimination concerns or complaints.
Any person wishing to file a complaint may do so by informing the City Manager or the Director of Business and Community Development. Such complaints will also be referred to the North Carolina Human Relations Commission for investigation, conciliation and resolution.
