I purchased a building (in decent structural shape, but definitely rough) with the intent of renovating it slowly, over time. However, unknown to me the building was on a list of properties that the city wanted to demolish.
I have had the property inspected and received a notice that the inspection revealed that it was 'secured and appears to be sound and repairable'
However, the city is now demanding that I finish the rehab within three months - something that's completely out of the realm of financial possibility.
Rather than get my building removed from the demolition list, I now seem to have a 'deferral', but this just seems to be a way for the city to force me to pay for permits I don't need in order to save my house. What can I do? Have other people in B&B had a similar issue with the city?
