An article written by Brian Edlin was recently featured in the December 2008 publication of the Real Property Newsletter for the North Carolina Bar Association. The article traces the highlights of the past 10 years of North Carolina’s Planned Community Act, N.C.G.S. §47F-1-101 et seq. (“Act”) and reviews the legislative changes to the Act since its enactment in 1999. The article also discusses several of the important cases interpreting the Act over the past 10 years, including cases on fines, standing and the constitutional issues associated with applying portions of the Act to pre-1999 communities.
