Investigation to explain the allegedly high rate of mortgage denials for people of color compared to Caucasians.
McCune Law Group, McCune Wright Arevalo Vercoski Kusel Weck Brandt APC (MLG), is investigating bringing a lawsuit over the denial of mortgages for people of color by several banks, including Regions Bank. There have been reports suggesting that certain banks have been engaging in practices such as declining loans to people of color with acceptable credit and offering unfavorable loan terms to minority borrowers, resulting in limited access to credit and potentially perpetuating economic disparities. This is an investigation only at this point, and we are not alleging any illegal practices by Regions Bank or other banks other than the published disparities in denial rates. The disparity between denials for people of color and Caucasian is large and causes concern and is the basis for the investigation to determine the reasons and justification for this disparity. There is a need to investigate to ensure transparency, accountability, and the implementation of fair lending practices to ensure equal opportunities for all individuals in the financial sector. If you are a Regions Bank customer and believe you have been unfairly declined for a conventional mortgage despite being qualified, contact a McCune Law Group attorney today.Contact a Racial & Economic Justice Attorney Here

Regions Bank Allegedly Displaying Disparate Mortgage Denial Rates Between People of Color and Caucasian People
McCune Law Group, McCune Wright Arevalo Vercoski Kusel Weck Brandt, APC, (MLG) is investigating the need to bring a legal action against banks like Regions Bank over allegedly for mortgages denying mortgages to qualified people of color more often than Caucasian borrowers. These allegations suggest that the bank has denied loans more often or provided unfavorable terms to minority borrowers despite their acceptable credit history a much higher rate than their Caucasian counterparts. Such practices perpetuate economic disparities and hinder the growth and prosperity of marginalized communities. This investigation seeks to find answers for qualified customers of color who have been seemingly unfairly denied loans from banks like Regions Bank.
Banks Are Held Accountable by Federal Law
The Fair Housing Act is a federal law enacted in 1968 that prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status, and disability. It aims to protect individuals from being denied equal access to housing opportunities, including renting, buying, or securing a mortgage. The Act makes it illegal to engage in discriminatory practices such as refusing to rent or sell housing, setting different terms or conditions, or providing false information about the availability of housing based on protected characteristics
Despite these protections, systemic barriers such as racial disparities in income, wealth, and education can create barriers to housing opportunities for people of color, perpetuating inequality even with the protections of the Fair Housing Act. MLG invites those who believe they are victims of unfair or discriminatory lending practices to contact an attorney today.
