Vested Right

In a matter of environmental nuisances and causes of insalubrity, the vested right is not taken for granted. In this way, the court established that the vested right does not permit to create or maintain nuisance or hazardous situation for public health and quality of environment. Finally, the vested right concerns only the building itself but not its polluting activity.

Minimum fine: $1000 plus $278 of fees
