The US Supreme Court Upholds Private Property Rights

June 12, 2023

Last month, two Supreme Court rulings confirmed protection of the rights of property owners.

In the case, Tyler v. Hennepin County, which NAR outwardly supported, the Court confirmed that the equity homeowners build in their properties is a constitutionally protected right and cannot be unduly or unfairly seized by the government.

In the second case, Sackett v. EPA, the Court clarified the rules and regulations on the building on personal land under the Clean Water Act.
