Firm accused of targeting Michigan Black would-be homebuyers sued

CLOSE

A real estate firm that operates a rent-to-own home selling business  is accused in a class action lawsuit of targeting Black would-be homebuyers in southeast Michigan.

A complaint filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan accuses Vision Property Management of buying about 1,000 foreclosed homes in Black neighborhoods in the Detroit and Flint areas and then “selling” often-dilapidated homes under contracts that obscured the cost of buying and repairing the homes. The terms of the contract made it difficult for the would-be homebuyers to achieve homeownership.

The complaint says Vision described the contracts to both potential homebuyers and investors as land contracts, but they appeared to be leases with options to buy.

“People who signed contracts with Vision were saddled with all the repairs, upkeep, insurance and taxes — all the responsibilities that come with homeownership — with none of the rights,” said
