On July 1, 2016, pursuant to Connecticut Senate Bill 152 (SB 152), the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities published on its website a one-page disclosure form (Fair Housing Notice) containing information on housing discrimination and federal and state fair housing laws. Each person who offers a residential property containing two or more units in Connecticut for sale, exchange or for lease with option to buy must attach a photocopy, duplicate original, facsimile transmission or other exact reproduction or duplicate of the Fair Housing Notice, signed by the prospective purchaser, to any purchase agreement, option or lease containing a purchase option, at the time of closing. This new requirement goes into effect on August 30, 2016.
