Affordable housing is not a topic that has traditionally gotten a lot of ink from legal publishers, but now the ABA has just published The Legal Guide to Affordable Housing Development, edited by the USF School of Law's Professor Tim Iglesias and his colleague Rochelle Lento from the firm of Dykema Gossett PLLC.
The ABA's blurb announces that the guide "covers the most important areas of law applicable to affordable housing development and provides a comprehensive overview of affordable housing laws."
Sponsored by the ABA’s Section of State and Local Government Law, Forum on Affordable Housing & Community Development Law and written by experts from all over the country, the Guide, in 13 chapters, deals with: planning; zoning, housing codes, and other federal, state and local regulatory issues; financing; enforcing regulatory agreements; and preservation. (For more detail, see the online table of contents.) Professor Iglesias is the author of Chapter 4, "State and Local Regulation of Particular Types of Affordable Housing."
The USF community will find The Legal Guide to Affordable Housing Development in the Zief Library second-floor stacks at KF 5729 .L44 2005.
And, The Legal Guide to Affordable Housing Development is available for purchase from the ABA
