The Legislative Committee hears bills related to real estate.
BOSTON (AP). The bill, concerning anyone who sets up a camera to record activities in a neighbor’s backyard without his permission, is just one of dozens of pieces of legislation set to be heard in a virtual public hearing at the Massachusetts House on Tuesday. Other bills to be heard by the Judiciary Committee of the Legislative Assembly will remove racial restrictive clauses in real estate documents, prevent the use of “offensive” prominent domain hijacks, guarantee a universal right to a lawyer in eviction cases, and protect buyers from unknowingly buying property in the floodplain.
