KEENE, N.H. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has charged a New Hampshire real estate agent with discrimination, alleging he refused to rent an apartment to families with children in Keene.

The agent, Allan Saari, of Harrisville, denied the charge Wednesday and said he’s hired a lawyer.

The charge alleges a married couple with children first learned about the apartment through an ad. The wife contacted Saari about it. The complaint alleges he told her that he wasn’t interested in renting to anyone with children and that he had just evicted a family with children because they were too loud.

Saari says he didn’t tell the wife that.

The charges will be heard by an administrative law judge.
