DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Alleged discrimination within the housing market in Dayton leads to the filing of another complaint. This time the target is the 5th largest commercial bank in the U.S.
The National Fair Housing Alliance on behalf of Dayton and cities across the country has filed a discrimination complaint against U.S. Bank.
You'll recall the Dayton area was involved in another complaint a week ago involving Wells Fargo.
The housing alliance and four of its members including Miami Valley Fair Housing Center claim U.S. Bank is using race to determine how much attention it gives foreclosed properties.
An undercover investigation apparently showed foreclosed properties in white areas were maintained and marketed better than those in African-American and Latino neighborhoods.
Specifically in Dayton the investigation found 94% of all U. S. Bank properties in communities of color were missing for sale signs, giving them little chance of attracting potential buyers.
A U.S. Bank spokesperson told 2 news, "We have not received a single detail on any of the properties in the complaint. Without knowing the addresses, it's impossible to know the rightful owner, the servicer or the condition of the property."
The complaints are filed with the U.S. Department of Housing And Urban Development.
