Housing Discrimination NYC, Hamdi Nezaj Posted on 2019年6月18日 by wh1 Bronx landlord accused of rental discrimination:阿爱上海同城 lawsuit Housing nonprofit claims it ran successful sting against Hamdi Nezaj, who denies wrongdoing The Fair Housing J上海千花网龙凤论坛 ustice Center is suing Bronx landlord Hamdi Nezaj, accusing him of discriminating among potential tenants on the basis of race and source of income. Nezaj told The Real Deal he is innocent of the charges. The Financial District-based nonprofit claims to have sent several undercover workers, called “testers,” of various racial backgrounds and with various claimed sources of income to one of Nezaj’s rental offices. According to the lawsuit, while Nezaj allegedly informed white 上海龙凤论坛sh1f testers of available units and offered tours, black testers were repeatedly told that no apartments were available, sometimes just minutes after the white testers had left. In other cases, Nezaj all爱上海同城对对碰 egedly quoted significantly higher asking prices to black testers than those offered to white testers for the same units, according to FHJC’s complaint. The group also claims Nezaj discriminated similarly against prospective tenants who claimed they would utilize rental assistance to pay for units. If proven, the landlord’s alleged behavior would violate the federal Fair Housing Act. “I do not discriminate,” Nezaj told TRD. “I have black, I have Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Pakistani.” The landlord also claimed he rented units at his properties through a real estate agency, apparently contradicting FHJC’s claims that he dealt with its testers personally. According to the lawsuit, Nezaj’s son Lucky allegedly told one of the testers that his father “goes off of hunches” when deciding whether to rent to a prospective tenant. FHJC didn’t immediately return a request for comment. Tags: housing discrimination We are having some technical difficulties. Try again later.
