Latest Issue of The Vantage: Navigating the Minefield of Local Nuisance Ordinances and the FHA

 

Did you know applying local nuisance ordinances to victims of domestic violence could put you in violation of the FHA?

 

In this issue of The Vantage, we explore how domestic violence incidents can be impacted by local nuisance ordinances. Many nuisance ordinances include domestic violence within their definition of a “nuisance,” and in turn have an adverse impact on victims of domestic violence. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently issued guidance created to protect people from discrimination resulting from local nuisance ordinances.

 

In this issue, we cover:

  • The definition of a nuisance
  • How domestic violence incidents can be impacted by local nuisance ordinances
  • Recent HUD guidelines created to protect people from discrimination resulting from local nuisance ordinances
  • Real-life violation scenarios
