A company performing the value assessment of houses for bank loans placed the houses of two Roma families into the category “C” (“not negotiable or hardly negotiable”). They claimed that the reason for this was their Roma origin. During the investigation of the Equal Treatment Authority it turned out that the company had categorised the real estates without actually visiting the scenes.  The company claimed that the reason for this was that earlier they had performed assessments in the streets where the houses were located, and the low prestige of the neighbourhood substantiated the categorisation. The Equal Treatment Authority established discrimination, and ordered the assesing company to pay a fine of 300.000 Ft. [1]
