Drug Enforcement Act

Drug Enforcement Act

Relevant to real estate as it allows seizure of real property if illegal drug activities take place on it. Innocent owners may successfully contest the seizure after expending large sums of money to lawyers to prove that the owner had no involvement and no knowledge of the drug activity or took steps to stop the illegal activity but was unsuccessful. (The lesson for property owners is that if you are suspicious about drug-related activity in your apartments or other properties,you cannot take a “live and let live”approach to the problem.)
