The City of St. Louis Civil Rights Enforcement Agency (CREA) recently negotiated a monetary settlement in excess of a thousand dollars with a Property management company after investigating claims of discrimination based on sex, in violation of the Federal Fair Housing Act of 1968, as amended.
CREA has a contract with the federal U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to investigate claims of housing discrimination in the City of St. Louis.
Complainant alleged sex discrimination against the Property Manager, due to perceived refusal to make needed repairs to the unit. According to Complainant, numerous contact attempts were made regarding repairs needed in the apartment, each time with a failed response.
After investigating the allegations of the Claimants and the responses provided by the Property Manager, a settlement was reached with that in total was in excess of fifteen hundred dollars. CREA, per HUD guidelines, signed off on the settlement agreement.
CREA is here to impartially investigate claims of discrimination in housing when the unit is located in the City of St. Louis. Please contact CREA at 314/622-3301 if you believe you may be (or have been) the victim of housing discrimination.
