Fair Housing Council of Greater San Antonio Files Federal Housing Discrimination Lawsuit Against Local Property Management Companies

May 2, 2018, San Antonio, Texas – Today, the Fair Housing Council of Greater San Antonio (“FHCOGSA”) filed a federal lawsuit against apartment management companies Texas Regional Asset Management, L.L.C.; Vesta Corporation; El Patrimonio Apartments, L.P.; and Gates of Capernum Apartments, L.P. (“Defendants”) for discriminating against families with children in violation of the federal Fair Housing Act.

The lawsuit alleges that Defendants enforce unreasonable and discriminatory rules against families with children at the apartment complexes that they manage throughout South Texas. Defendants, for example, enforce strict curfews after which parents and their children cannot be anywhere outside of their immediate apartment units (including their own patios), which precludes tenants with children from accessing amenities and common areas that tenants without children can access without restriction. Defendants also prohibit children from being supervised on Defendants’ properties by any adult other than a parent. Tenants who violate Defendants’ rules for families with children are faced with hundreds of dollars in fines or eviction.
