 Can A Landlord Say No Guns In My Apartments?

 Can I Say No Guns In My Apartments?

 Generally a private landlord can make a decision about whether to say "no guns in my apartments," unless a state  forbids landlords from banning guns in apartments or rental property, according to Denny Dobbins, general legal counsel and vice president of RentPerfect.com.

By John Triplett

How To Build Wealth Through Apartment Investing

How To Build Wealth Through Apartment Investing

How to build wealth through apartment investing is the subject of this blog by veteran real estate investor and syndicator Vinney Chopra. He takes a look at apartment investing and the steps it provides to building wealth.

Can Enforcing Nuisance Ordinances Lead To Fair Housing Violation?

The Grace Hill training tip of the week focuses on the issue of nuisance ordinances and whether they could lead to Fair Housing Act violations.

By Ellen Clark

Nuisance ordinances aim to keep communities crime free, increase property values, and encourage economic development but many nuisance ordinances include domestic violence incidents in the definition of a “nuisance.”

This can have an adverse impact on victims of domestic violence.
