The Dilapidated Buildings Act

Although it contains a few caveats the core of S.194 is the same as 2012’s deplorable dilapidated buildings act. Like its predecessor S.194 would empower government to seize private property, give it to a court-appointed receiver to repair or demolish, then either bill the original owner for repairs or, if the owner were unable to pay, sell it. This idea remains an egregious violation of property rights.
