Everett apartment owner slapped for housing discrimination

November 05, 2015
The owners of an Everett apartment building have entered into an agreement with the state Attorney General’s Office to settle racial discrimination claims.
     The agreement, called an “assurance of discontinuance,” states Renton-based DSB Investments LLC admitted to engaging in unfair real estate practices and employed discriminatory terms and conditions in connection with its management of the Glacier View Apartments in Everett.
     As part of the agreement between the state and the company, the company’s admission of wrongdoing “shall not be considered as an admission of violation for any purpose,” and that no further penalties would be assessed if the company keeps its end of the bargain.
