The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has reached settlement agreements with Magna Bank in Nashville, TN, and Home Loan Center, Inc. in Irvine, CA, resolving allegations that the two lenders denied mortgage loans to women because they were pregnant and on maternity leave. The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination in lending, sales and rental transactions based on a person’s sex, family status, race, color, national origin, religion or disability. HUD announced the discrimination settlements as part of its annual Fair Housing Month commemoration kick-off.
