Iím a layman in this area and only know of this situation based on this article. Iím interested in what others have to say about the matter.
Most of us would obviously want affordable housing for our seniors but there are some interesting questions here.
From purely a property rights prospective, after the expiration of the rent control contract, isnít this de facto public housing on private property and a quasi form of eminent domain control?
The property owner is apparently making plans to sell his property, be it in whole or pieces, after the expiration of the rent control agreement. Isnít that his right?
