Prior to a kid birthday party landscapers that my wife hired cut a dead tree bordering my property and county park land. A senior nagging neighbor told the landscaper to keep off the park land.
The neighbor from two houses away then followed up by reporting my backyard to the county.
A police officer visited, a survey was done, both my kids playground had to be moved up 2 feet & another neighbor’s patio had to be partially uprooted.
I went to talk to this old a hole neighbor. He thought I was confronting him about the yard.
I had a buyer interested in his home (I’m a Realtor) he showed me all around his house before saying he just refinanced & plans to stay a long time. Fast forward a couple months.
He lists his home for sale with an agent I’ve never met. With 5 Bedrooms & 4.5 bathrooms. The tax record shoes 2.5 bathrooms so the work done was not permitted, no permit was pulled.
I filed a non-permitted work complaint. The house went under contract, they agreed to repair a few items in the home inspection agreement; THEN the Sherriff showed up, followed by an inspection.
They had to spend a thousands of dollars to have permits pulled after the fact, and prove the work was done to code then repair it to code. Then they moved away.
