Houston LandingCathy Mansfield, senior instructor in law, said that a housing project in Texas is using business practices that are discriminatory and violate federal consumer protection laws. “If you don’t do any underwriting, you’re putting both people who should be getting a lower rate and people who are definitely going to fail into these more expensive loans,” she said.
