HUD to investigate mortgage lenders who discriminate againest expectant mothers and new parents

 

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced today that it will launch multiple investigations into the lending practices of certain mortgage lenders to determine if they illegally denied families mortgages because the mother is pregnant or a family member is experiencing a short-term disability. The action follows a report published this week in the New York Times outlining the lending practices of some lenders which might possibly violate the Fair Housing Act.

“Denying a mortgage to people just because they’re having a baby is flat wrong,” said Vice President Biden, Chair of the White House Task Force on Middle Class Families. “Mothers on maternity leave have jobs, they have income, and they shouldn’t have to lose their deal to close on a house because they had a baby. I applaud HUD for taking action on this practice that could potentially affect untold numbers of families.” «Read the rest of this article»
