Buried Alive: the human rights implications of compulsive hoarding in a landlord-tenant context
Over the years NLS has been involved in many cases involving compulsive hoarding in a housing context, and we have learnt first hand the difficulty and complexity of such matters, as well as of the dearth of resources available to hoarders and their advocates. Today, compulsive hoarding is increasingly part of the public consciousness. Yet this complex issue is often reduced to garish portrayals on reality television or to stereotypical depictions in the media when recounting the actual or potential health and safety risks of such compulsive behaviour.
