HUD CHARGES WISCONSIN LANDLORD FOR INSISTING ON A MAN IN THE HOUSE

WASHINGTON, DC – September 8, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is charging a La Crosse County, Wisconsin landlord with violating the Fair Housing Act for refusing to rent a house to a single mother because there was no adult male to live with her. HUD brings the charge on behalf of the single woman, claiming that the owner of the property, Dovenberg Investments, LLC and property manager Darlene Dovenberg refused to rent a house in rural Bangor to the woman because she, among other things, did not have a man “to shovel the snow.”
