Relman, Dane & Colfax is pleased to announce the publication of an article examining an emerging issue in the enforcement of fair housing claims against lenders for racially discriminatory maintenance of their REO properties. Specifically, the article refutes the oft-heard suggestion that lenders who hold title to REO properties as “trustees” for securitization trusts cannot be held responsible for fair housing claims. Authored by Stephen Dane and titled “The Exposure of Securitization Trustees to Liability Under the Fair Housing Act for Poorly Maintained Real Estate Owned Properties,” the article appears in the February 2014 issue of the Banking Law Journal.
