Another landlord accused of discriminating against renters with kids

June 24, 2015
You may think your kids are awesome. But does your landlord or condo association? Maybe, maybe not.
     A North Attleborough apartment complex owner is on the hook for $135,000 in restitution after a real estate agent leasing units at the Royal Park Apartments allegedly steered families with children into certain buildings and floors.
     A government testing agent, who met with a real estate agent leasing apartments at Royal Park, was given a rather blunt explanation why some buildings had a mix of adult renters and families with children, despite efforts to the contrary.
     “You will see some kids there ’cause if they are born there I can’t throw them away. They have to stay there,” the agent said, according to the court complaint filed by the U.S. Department of Justice.
