I would suggest notifying the city inspector’s office. If they can’t help, they’ll know who to contact. Find out exactly what is expected of a ‘firehab’ to pass inspection. Get a purchase agreement contingent on costs to rehab (must pass city’s inspections). Make sure everything neccesary for work is spelled out on the bids. Depending on the extent of damage, firehabs can be a big ‘can of worms’. Make sure to have all bases covered before commiting to the purchase.
