Hassan co-sponsors affordable housing bill
U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-NH, is a cosponsor of legislation aimed at increasing investment in affordable housing by expanding the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, a key tool used by developers to build and rehabilitate affordable housing.
The Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act would increase the number of credits available to states by 50 percent for the next two years and make permanent the temporary 12.5 percent increase secured in 2018. It also would stabilize financing for workforce housing projects built using private activity bonds by decreasing the amount of private activity bonds needed to secure LIHTC funding.

Swanzey resident found guilty of improper asbestos management
A Swanzey resident was sentenced to a 12-months suspended jail sentence and ordered to pay a $2,500 fine for felonious improper asbestos management, according to the attorney general’s office.
According to the AG Aaron Doleszny, 35, worked as a contractor at an elderly person’s residence in Charlestown between March 2019 and July 2019. Although the resident’s daughter told Doleszny that siding shingles contained asbestos, Doleszny failed to contact the NH Department of Environmental Services before starting the work and did not “take precautionary measures to prevent asbestos fibers from entering the environment while completing the work,” according to the AG’s office.
According to state law, a person is guilty of a felony if they knowingly and willfully violate any provision of the statute, which dictates proper asbestos management, control and disposal.
Beach Homes Realty launches website
Lake Homes Realty, an Alabama-based real estate company that specializes in lakefront properties across the country, has branched out and launched Beach Homes Realty and a new website, Beach-Homes.com, that it says will help homebuyers and sellers find beachfront, beach-view and beach-access homes easier. It features over 68,000 coastal properties across 14 states from Texas to New Hampshire, the company said.
According to Glenn S. Phillips, CEO and chief economic analyst, “Beach Homes Realty accesses MLS data from these 14 states each day, so those searching beach homes and lots will have the latest offerings. Instead of having to search separate websites or navigate through non-coastal properties, we merged our targeting technology expertise and niche real estate specialization to streamline the process.”
Florida dominates the website’s current listings, with nearly 42,000 homes or lots across 185 beach communities. New Hampshire, with the smallest shoreline, New Hampshire has 72 listings in six beach communities.
