Housing Law

Landye Bennett Blumstein represents owners and developers of subsidized residential housing. We prepare admission and occupancy policies and procedures necessary to manage housing programs in compliance with Alaska statutes, federal law, and grant agreements. 

Clients include Regional Native Housing Authorities providing moderate to low-income housing in underserved regions of Alaska, tribes, and tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs) under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA) and other federally-funded housing programs. Such programs include Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), BIA’s HIP program, HUD’s 202 program for the elderly, and programs sponsored by the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation.

Josh Hodes represents developers and managers of rental properties, including military housing, in addition to his commercial real estate work.

Representing housing owners often requires litigation, including repossession/ejectment under lease-to-own programs and evictions in rental programs. Firm attorneys are also experienced in nonjudicial and judicial foreclosure law. LBB attorneys regularly donate time to assist tenants facing eviction and other landlord/tenant issues.
