As a real estate attorney in Eastern and Central Connecticut, I know all too well about the serious problem of crumbling foundations. Regardless of whether or not the problem exists within your home or your neighborhood, it affects us all in that it negatively impacts real estate values across the entire region. There is no easy answer to this problem, although the captive insurance company created by the legislature has provided a promising start. I was particularly proud to write the bill in 2019 to allow victims of crumbling foundations the opportunity to obtain low interest loans for critical home improvements. I will continue to work on this issue with the bipartisan Crumbling Foundations Caucus.
