TO CLARIFY THE NUISANCE ABATEMENT LAWS.
Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to 2nd edition.
Amends GS 19-1(a) to delete language that specifies that repeated acts of certain illegal activities constitute a nuisance and instead provides that any building or place which is used for any of the specified illegal activities constitutes a nuisance. Makes a conforming change, deleting the definition for repeated acts. Also amends GS 19-1.2(6) to define as a type of nuisance every place used to commit specified illegal acts (was, wherein or whereon there were repeated illegal acts).
Deletes provisions in subsections GS 19-1(a) and (b) and GS 19-1.2(6) which provided that the remedy of forfeiture of real property provided in GS 19-6.1 does not apply to multifamily buildings containing more than four individual rental units. Changes the title of the act.
