As you may be aware, banks across the country have reported an increase in investigations of alleged redlining.

This discriminatory practice has been illegal for decades, yet it continues to persist in various forms.

A few key topics covered within this paper are:

  • Assessing relationships with referring brokers
  • Potential insurance coverage for redlining claims
