Housing authority law; spot blight abatement; interest on liens. Gives a locality a lien on property declared a nuisance when the locality, and not the owner, abates or removes the nuisance at its expense. The bill provides that this lien shall bear interest at the legal rate of interest established in 6.1-330.53, beginning on the date the removal or abatement is completed through the date on which the lien is paid. The bill also provides for the same interest rate for liens on property declared to be blighted. Read the Bill »
