so its why you will see female tennant only posts for shared housing where as if you tried to do that for an independent dwelling you would run a fowl of various laws ,i cant find the link but i think it stems from a 1970s ruling where no one wanted an unwed female being forced to live with a male she did not know (think 3s company status) also from above link is what the ruling hinged upon
In its 2012 opinion in Fair Housing Council of San Fernando Valley v.Roommate.com , LLC , 1 the Ninth Circuit held that neither the federal FairHousing Act (FHA) 2 nor California’s equivalent (Fair Employment andHousing Act, or FEHA) 3 applies to “shared living situations” because of a conﬂict with the constitutional right to free association. The case turnedon the court’s reading of the statute and its adherence to the principle of avoiding constitutional conﬂict in statutory interpretation. The ruling ab-solved Roommate.com, LLC (an Internet roommate-matching service),as well as anyone offering shared housing, from liability under thesestatutes.
