Corporation A enters into a lease of residential property in NYC from Corporation B to provide short term (less than a year) accommodation to one of Corporation A's employees.
Is the lease subject to the Fair Housing Act?

Interesting question. I would check with a lawyer on this one. I believe the answer would be yes, the Fair Housing Act would apply to ANY AND ALL Residential leases, but if you really think it's an issue, check with a lawyer to be sure.

A Corporation is not a person.
Fair Housing Protects people, that all people be treated equally.
A corporation is not a protected group.
