Publication of New Article: Practical Issues in Planning for Age-Restricted Housing under the Housing for Older Persons Act (HOPA)
Associate Marian Black and shareholder Jan Bozeman authored the recent article “Practical Issues in Planning for Age-Restricted Housing Under the Housing for Older Persons Act (HOPA)” published in the January/February 2009 issue of Probate & Property, a publication of the Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section of the American Bar Association. The article discusses practical issues and potential pitfalls for developers of age-restricted communities, such as distinguishing business strategy from marketing strategy, disclosing age restrictions, selling into the “20% buffer,” defining “occupancy,” and taking account of state and local laws. Members of the Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section of the ABA can access the article directly here, or you can contact us directly for a copy.
