Traditional Property Rights

Standing for Individual Property Rights Since 1977

Imagine a Boston widow who owns and lives in a triple decker apartment building, who relies on her tenants’ rent to be able to pay the mortgage on her home, who is unable to enforce her lease agreement and risks losing her home because of a governmental order that provides no financial relief for her?

Imagine politicians who support laws and regulations that grossly and artificially increase the costs and limit the supply of rental housing, who propose the solution of more governmental regulation, such as rent control, to solve the problem created by governmental regulation?

Imagine state and local regulations and laws that needlessly inflate the cost of single family homes so that home ownership is out of reach for broad segments of our citizens?

“We feel that if in exceptional cases there is any conflict between the rights of property and the rights of man, then we must stand for the rights of man.”

Theodore Roosevelt
