It is with great sadness and reflection that we announce the passing of Benny L. Kass, a long-time Realty Times contributor and author of the weekly Housing Counsel column with The Washington Post for nearly 30 years. Mr. Kass was the senior partner with the Washington, DC law firm of KASS LEGAL GROUP, PLLC, and a specialist in such real estate legal areas as commercial and residential financing, closings, foreclosures and workouts.
Mr. Kass was a Charter Member of the College of Community Association Attorneys, and wrote extensively about community association issues. In addition, he was a member of the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws. In this capacity, he was involved in the development of almost all of the Commission’s real estate laws, including the Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act, which has been adopted in many states.
We thank Benny for his weekly contributions to Realty Times and for always being a reliable voice in assisting real estate agents and homebuyers alike. Our hearts are with his family during this very difficult time. He will be greatly missed.
