HUD accuses housing providers of discrimination
NEW ORLEANS - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is accusing a Georgia homeowner's association and a Louisiana property owner of discriminating against families with children.
HUD said in a statement Wednesday that an administrative law judge will hear the agency's allegations against Peachtree Court Homeowners Association Inc. and Brandon Tarricone, a Peabody, Massachusetts, resident who owns rental property in New Orleans.
Both housing providers are accused of violating the Fair Housing Act.
HUD claims Peachtree Court Homeowners Association rejected a family's request to have a children's playset in their backyard, fined the family for unauthorized improvements and prevented the family from using a community pool.
Tarricone allegedly discouraged a "fair housing tester" posing as a father with eight-month-old twins from renting his property due to the man's family status.
