Did you receive a Notice of Violation from Code Enforcement?

Q:        I recently bought a home in Coconut Creek FL and I just received a Notice of Violation from Code Enforcement, but I don’t understand what the violation is for.  What should I do?

A:        After receiving a notice of violation from code enforcement, the first thing you should do is read the notice carefully to find out what the violation is for.  If you have read the notice and remain unsure as to what the violation is for, you should immediately contact the Coconut Creek FL code inspector that issued you the notice of violation and request clarification of what the violation is for and the necessary corrective action required to remedy the violation.  If the violation is clarified and you have no objection to bringing the violation into compliance within the timeframe the code inspector provided, then promptly correct the violation and contact the code inspector to request a compliance inspection.  However, if you do not agree that what you were cited for is a legitimate code violation, or you feel that the amount of time provided for correction is unreasonable, you should place a call to the Law Office of Brian P. Kowal, PA at (954) 990-7552 so that we can review the particulars of your case with you and determine what your next step should be.
