What is Housing Discrimination?
In Salt Lake County, the Recorder's office keeps important records about properties. Unfortunately, some homes in the county were built and established with documents that had racist and discriminatory rules about who could live there.
If you're a homeowner in Salt Lake County and you discover discriminatory language in your property record, you may bring a notarized statement (you can find it at the link below) to the Salt Lake County Recorder’s office. We will file it with your property records for free, clearly stating that the unjust parts are no longer valid, according to Utah Code Section 57-21-6.1.
It's important to note that filing this statement doesn't remove or erase the old documents. Instead, it's recorded in the public record along with a reference to the original document. The goal is to make sure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect in our community.
