Unsafe Structure & Code Compliance Violations Rehabilitation

Front of home with violations before rehabilitationThis home was purchased with an existing unsafe structure cases open with Miami Dade county Building Department. The owners had to hire an attorney to file an injunction to put a halt to the demolition order that the county had placed on the property. In due time if the owners did not begin to correct the problems by submitting plans and permits, the department was in its right to demolish the existing house and leave the bill for the owner to pay. The county would then place a lien on the property in order for them to recuperate their monies.
