13. I want to rent a flat. The landlord and I have already agreed to all the terms and conditions. However, after learning that I am going to live with a relative who is mentally handicapped, the landlord refused to rent the flat to me. Has the landlord contravened the Disability Discrimination Ordinance?

If the landlord refuses to rent the flat to you only because your relative is mentally handicapped, he/she may have contravened section 28 of the DDO.
