HUD Charges Bank Of America With Violations of the Fair Housing Act, Discrimination

FHA loan applicants should know their rights under the Fair Housing Act, which forbids discrimination in the terms and conditions of a loan to an individual based on disability.

That includes setting a different standard or requiring different application processes for disabled FHA and conventional loan applicants. Under federal law, it is also illegal for a lender to ask about the nature or severity of a disability except in limited circumstances explained in the Fair Housing Act.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recently announced it is charging Bank of America with discriminating against homebuyers with disabilities.
