Is there a Spanish equivalent of "blight violation"?

Blight violation is a violation of a local ordinance, similar to a public nuisance. The precise definition varies by local area, but examples may include change in land use without a permit, lack of exterior property maintenance, or trash accumulation. It often involves something unsightly, offensive, or hazardous that lowers property values or threatens public safety.

    @elroy In Puerto Rico we have something similar: a law focusing on estorbo(s) público(s).
    ...declarar estorbo público cualquier solar abandonado, yermo o baldío, cuyas condiciones o estado representen peligro o resulten ofensivas o perjudiciales a la salud y seguridad de la comumidad y a adoptar ordenanzas disponiendo lo relativo a las viviendas que por su estado de ruina, falta de reparación y defectos de construcción son peligrosas o perjudiciales para la salud o seguridad...

    Here is additional info.
    Hope that helps.

    Legal translation is problematic because in many cases there is a lack of equivalence in terms and concepts between legal systems that are different, as in this case (Common Law system to Civil Law system).

    My translation of "blight violation" would be:
    "Infracción al régimen Urbanístico" or "Infracción Urbanística"
