Can A Landlord Charge Different Rents For The Same Type Of Unit?

A landlord can charge different rates for identical apartment units if both the landlord and the tenant agree to the rental rate. However, the landlord cannot base the difference in rent on the tenant`s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or family status. Also, a landlord may not advertise rates at a certain rent level only to rent them at a higher rate.
