The NAHB Legal Advocacy Program is tasked with going to court on behalf of the nation’s builders, remodelers and developers to protect the interests of the housing industry against unlawful government action. Through the Office of the General Council, Legal Advocacy carries out its tasks by bringing suit directly, such as in challenging administrative agency regulations, or filing “friend of the court” briefs in various federal and state courts on diverse issues from construction liability and land use to “waters of the United States” rulings. We want to keep housing affordable and plentiful for tomorrow’s home owners.
Below you'll see a handful of the many cases in which we've participated. But you can use site search to seek out particular cases, legal issues (e.g. takings), specific courts (e.g., Texas Supreme Court, 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals), or types of involvement (e.g., amicus).
