I can give you a RE attorney we work with her in Orlando that could probably help
Thanks Kim I sent you a text
Hi Geoffrey, I wish. They charged $500 for the privilege to ask them to reduce the lien. Now $200 more to appeal. Dies Pinellas have such a program that you described?
Most counties/cities work with new owners solving these problems. Down here it varies from a about 10-30% of the accrued lien.
For that kind of money, get a Local attorney experienced/connected with the county.
Maybe spend part of a day at the courthouse reviewing code violation appeal case files, it’s all public record. Note the attorneys, and any patterns.
This is an excellent idea Wayne. I shall go research this next week. Thank you.
Hi guys - I have a similar situation in Seminole County with liens for a junk car that has accrued to $100k (ridiculous). They will not mitigate because I knew of lien due to lien search. While I've mitigated millions in liens, I've never come across such a ridiculous rule. Need to know if someone has contacts/attorneys that are familiar with their process. I've complied all violations within 3 weeks of ownership and thought they would appreciate it not try to get rich off of me. Time is of the essence as they now want to abate the property.
