I bought a crack house about 4 yrs. ago. I paid 23k cash. Put about 5k into rehab (did all the work myself). Code enforcement paid me a visit just about the time the rehab was done. Told me that I needed to pull permits for the work completed. I was liable for about 3k in fees and fines. The chief inspector stopped by the next day and saw the work I had done on the place. He told me that I was liable for about 3k in fines and fees. Looked over my work and said on his way out the door you have done the community a great service because he had been at this place once a week for the past 2 yrs. Told me to have a nice day and again “thanke from all of us downtown”.
