HUD CHARGES CONNECTICUT PROPERTY OWNER, MANAGER WITH DENYING HOUSING TO AFRICAN AMERICAN FAMILY

WASHINGTON, DC – September 6, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today announced that it is charging Merline and Clifton Hylton, the owner and manager of a rental home in Windsor Locks, Connecticut with violating the Fair Housing Act for denying a request by biracial tenants to sublease their home to an African American family. The current tenants allege that Mr. Hylton told them he was rejecting the prospective sub-tenants because he “did not want too many blacks at the property.”
