New York City real estate firm Castellan Real Estate Partners has agreed to settle allegations that it threatened to evict Spanish-speaking tenants who couldn’t show passports or proof of citizenship, and pressured dozens to sign agreements to vacate their homes.

Castellan, owner of 49 state-regulated buildings in Harlem, Washington Heights, the South Bronx and Brooklyn, admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement with the state of New York’s Division of Housing and Community Renewal. Source:
