Lender discrimination based on property type or location?

Just about everybody active in real estate knows that mortgage lenders are required to treat loan applicants equally and fairly, approving applications on the basis of creditworthiness, not race, gender, age, disability or religion.
     But what about lenders who discriminate against certain types of properties or real estate locations-properties that have direct connections to one of those protected categories of home buyers?
