Idaho Landlords face charges


Posted On: June 4, 2019

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has charged three people in a discrimination case in Idaho. HUD says they violated the Fair Housing Act by refusing to rent the home to a married couple because they have children.

The family was looking for a new home due to flooding. They needed to live close to where they worked. The only housing offered was 95 miles away. When they saw an ad for a local rental on the internet, they immediately called. Everything was going well until the property manager asked a simple question.

HUD says the owners discriminated due to familial status. The Fair Housing Act makes it unlawful to deny or limit housing because a family has children under the age of 18, make statements that discriminate against families with children, and impose different rules, restriction and policies on them.
