MBA Statement on Fair Housing Act Anniversary

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Fair Housing Act, David H. Stevens, CMB, President and CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association, offered the following statement:

“The Fair Housing Act is a landmark piece of legislation that ensures equal access to housing for everyone. Its most important impact is that it explicitly prohibits discrimination in the buying, selling, renting, or financing of housing based on race, skin color, sex, nationality, religion, or any other protected class characteristic. The Fair Housing Act remains a vital law and is something that the real estate finance industry strongly endorses.”
