A landlord participating in a federally funded rent subsidy program for low-income tenants has agreed to settle allegations of violating the False Claims Act. In order to receive housing assistance funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Harold Joseph Tyler of Tyler Realty Group had certified that he would not charge more rent than was agreed upon. According to a tenant who filed the qui tam complaint that launched the investigation, however, Tyler effectively charged additional rent in the form of a recurring “non-refundable deposit” of nearly $200 per month.
