TOO MUCH STUFF – HOARDING

Hoarding is officially recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as a mental disorder.  The Federal Fair Housing Act says that equal housing must be given to persons who are a member of a protected class, such as for those with a disability.  This, in turn, means that landlords must make “reasonable accommodations” for a hoarder.  Landlords must also take action in situations where a tenant’s behavior may adversely affect the health, safety or welfare of other tenants.  Contacting an attorney well versed in Fair Housing laws would be prudent.  The health department may also be able to offer assistance.
