Housing Authority Lawyers in South Carolina
Horton Law Firm has extensive experience serving as general counsel to local Housing Authorities. Since the early 1970s, Horton’s attorneys have served as valued partners and advisers to South Carolina Housing Authorities, advising and representing them on all areas of housing authority law, including:
- Public contracts
- Freedom of Information (FOIA)
- Affordable housing
- HUD regulatory issues
- Real estate development and construction law
- Employment law
- Landlord tenant law
Horton knows that a Housing Authority’s work is driven by HUD’s fundamental mandate “to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.” Horton’s housing authority representation therefore begins with, and is always informed by, the United States National Housing Act of 1937, as amended (42 U.S.C. §§1437, et seq.), and South Carolina’s Housing Authorities Law, S.C Code Ann. §§13-3-10, et seq.

Bo Campbell has represented housing authorities in South Carolina’s administrative, magistrate, State and Federal courts in various contested cases, including construction and labor law disputes, and landlord-tenant matters.
