BP: HUD charges Beltrami County property owners, real estate agent with discrimination


August 20, 2018

WASHINGTON – On Friday, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced it has charged the owners of a house in Beltrami County and their real-estate agent with discrimination for refusing to rent the house to a family because of race, national origin and their minor children.

In the charges, HUD alleges that the owners and their real estate agent, Lakes and More Realty, doing business as Bemidji Property Management, refused to rent a 7,000 square-foot, six-bedroom house in 2016 to a family of four adults and seven children because of their race -- Native American -- and national origin -- Hispanic -- and because the family has minor children, according to a release from HUD.
