I thought we were not to note how close houses were to particular churches.

Hi David. The description in my opinion does not violate RESPA, but it does violate the Fair Housing Act. I see a couple of violations here. 1) It discriminates against someone who doesn't have a family or children and 2) It steers people either to or away from the neighborhood because they may be or not be of the Presbyterian faith

Good Post!

Yes it is, Bo ! Designed to summon up a little consideration. Nice to hear from you.

Good observation, Michael. RESPA is part of a financial concern with HUD and the lender; not a Fair Housing issue as you pointed out. Nice to hear from you.
