HUD Duh

OK, OK, I know.  Sometimes those fair housing issues are complicated.  Maybe there’s a close call.  Sometimes the HUD case inspectors  seem to have it out for you and the HOA.  But once in a while you just have to wonder what is going on with the American educational system.  Today Tampa area’s Townhomes of Kings Lake  gets the wag of the finger.

Tampa Bay Times

As reported by the Tampa Bay Times, who, as far as I know, has no reason to make a Gibsonton HOA look any dumber than the facts require, this association tried to enforce an occupancy limit and policy on a tenant family of eight, saying they “had too many kids.”  It sounds like the family has other issues going on, but from an HOA best practices point of view, this is not good.   Not good at all.

This is not a hot-button cultural question balancing on the definition of a family.  This is just plain, old, well-settled, illegal discrimination.  Don’t do it.
