Record Charges of Land Lord Discrimination

Published tisdag 9 oktober 2007 kl 10.46

The Swedish discrimination ombudsman reports that a record number of complaints about discriminating land lords  have been filed this year – already passing last year’s record of 60.

One case now going to court in the west coast city of  Gothenberg concerns a father with a foreign-sounding name who claims he was never answered when he sent in a request to see a new apartment for rent.

He adds that a colleague with a Swedish name was notified that he was welcome to check out the same apartment.

The land lord denies that he discriminated against the foreign-born applicant – insisting he rejected him when he used a sharp tone over the telephone when asking about the apartment.
