Private Rights Under The Housing Act: Preserving Rental Assistance For Section 8 Tenants, John M. Lerner 2014 Boston College Law School

Private Rights Under The Housing Act: Preserving Rental Assistance For Section 8 Tenants, John M. Lerner

Boston College Journal of Law & Social Justice

The Housing Choice Voucher Program provides low-income families with federally funded rental assistance. In order to receive rental assistance, tenants and landlords must maintain units in compliance with the Housing Quality Standards promulgated by the United States Housing Act. A failure by either party to comply with the Housing Quality Standards results in a termination of the federal funding. Unfortunately for voucher recipients, this means that they can be stripped of their rental assistance through no fault of their own. To remedy this situation, many tenants have tried to bring an action against their landlord, alleging a violation of the ...


In Defense Of Disparate Impact: An Opportunity To Realize The Promise Of The Fair Housing Act, Valerie Schneider 2014 SelectedWorks

In Defense Of Disparate Impact: An Opportunity To Realize The Promise Of The Fair Housing Act, Valerie Schneider

Valerie Schneider

Abstract:

Twice in the past three years, the Supreme Court has granted certiorari in Fair Housing cases, and, each time, under pressure from civil rights leaders who feared that the Supreme Court might narrow current Fair Housing Act jurisprudence, the cases settled just weeks before oral argument. Settlements after the Supreme Court grants certiorari are extremely rare, and, in these cases, the settlements reflect a substantial fear among civil rights advocates that the Supreme Court’s recent decisions in cases such as Shelby County v. Holder and Fisher v. University of Texas are working to dismantle many of the protections ...


At Forty-Five Years Old The Obligation To Affirmatively Further Fair Housing Gets A Face-Lift, But Will It Integrate America’S Cities?, Jonathan J. Sheffield Jr. 2014 SelectedWorks

At Forty-Five Years Old The Obligation To Affirmatively Further Fair Housing Gets A Face-Lift, But Will It Integrate America’S Cities?, Jonathan J. Sheffield Jr.

Jonathan J Sheffield Jr.

In July 2013 the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued a draft rule in order to improve implementation of the 1968 Fair Housing Act’s mandate to address segregated housing patterns. HUD’s 2013 proposed rule replaces its 1995 regulation under Section 3608(e) of the Fair Housing Act, which requires HUD and its grantees to act "affirmatively to further fair housing" (AFFH). This obligation has been in place for over forty-five years and it extends to other federal agencies that administer housing programs. Yet segregated communities persist in cities all across America, leaving large segments ...

Limited Equity Cooperatives: The Non-Economic Value Of Homeownership, Julie D. Lawton 2014 Washington University School of Law

Limited Equity Cooperatives: The Non-Economic Value Of Homeownership, Julie D. Lawton

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

Economists have argued there are two main purposes of homeownership. The first is housing as a utility for consumption, and the second is housing as an investment vehicle. Legal scholars, on the other hand, view homeownership in more personal terms. Margaret Radin, in her watershed article, argues that homeownership is so closely imbued with the person that it is affirmatively part of one‘s self—the personhood of property. Radin suggests that one‘s home is such a part of the way a person constitutes oneself that the property becomes an element of personhood, something no longer entirely external to ...
