. If you are concerned about crime it would be best to contact the local police department in your area. In Los Angeles we do have a website that tracts local crime statistics your local site is http://www.oxnardpd.org/crimedata

Dono,

It would be considered steering for me to comment crime in an area - "labeling" the area as "good or bad"

You are correct to want to know about crime in an area, but unless I have direct knowledge, I cannot just make assumptive statements about crime as this could "label" an area as undesirable that in fact may not be.

If I know about actual crime that has happened related to a home/neighborhood a prospective purchaser is considering then I have to disclose.

There are plenty of agents that will "label" areas assumptively which is in my opinion, steering. I like the Joe Friday approach ... "just the facts"

Referring people to crime statistical web sites is fine, but what if I make a referral to a site that does not have all the data?

I tend to think that Federal Trolls are posting these questions to see if they can catch any dumb agents.

I think this is a legitimate concern and i'm not sure where Mr. Mackel gets his data. It does not seem to be on his blog, the "source" which he gives as a "reference" for his assertion. My understanding is that fair housing law disallows discrimination on the basis of age, sex race, color, physical handicap, religion, ancestry, national origin, marital status or sexual orientation is not legal. This does not mean that discrimination on the basis of other things is illegal. Crime is certainly a legitimate concern and in many cases we have the specific right to know of criminals living in any given neighborhood. I think Mr. Mackel needs to supply us with the specific passage in fair housing law which supports his assertion.
