Judge Blocks Sale of Low-Income Apartments

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A federal judge blocked the sale of four Sacramento County apartment complexes until the owner complies with a state law designed to guarantee low-income housing.

At least 350 poor families feared having no place to go without rental assistance.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence K. Karlton said in a 40-page order that the National Housing Partnership, the apartments' Denver-based owner, did not give detailed enough information about its intent to pay off its federally subsidized mortgages and to opt out of a rent-subsidy program.
