In May, Michael Fee testified at the State House on behalf of the Boston Bar Association in support of BBA bill H3611 (formerly H1284). H3611 passed the House this week. The bill helps to protect consumers and other owners of improved real estate that is nonconforming when the applicable statute of limitations for zoning enforcement by a municipality has passed. The legislation gives formal recognition to these structure as legally nonconforming, and grants the attendant protections afforded such structures by law. The prior statute was ambiguous, and was the source of much uncertainty for owners and their lenders. To learn more, read Michael’s testimony.
