HUD Charges Colorado Landlords with Discriminating Against Families


In Early October the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced it is charging a group of Colorado landlords with housing discrimination for allegedly relegating families with children to apartments in the rear building of an apartment complex. HUD charged the hudimgproperty owners and on-site manager after fair housing testing discovered illegal “steering” was taking place based upon the tenant’s family status.

While there is legitimate concern about entrapment by these “fair housing” groups, there is no question that it is wrong to discriminate against tenants based on familial status.

Furthermore, National REIA believes strongly in promoting “professional and ethical business practices that set standards of excellence.”
