Swimming pools and spas on short sale properties are starting to give me grief. Just when I thought nothing else could slow down the short sale process for me, WHAM!, here comes County Code Enforcement slapping fines on bug infested swimming pools and spas. It doesn't take long for a pool or spa to turn green and ugly when the power has been turned off. Sellers don't want to deal with maintaining pools or spas after they vacate their homes. These fines have to be paid before you close on the property. Seller has no money and the bank doesn't want to deal with it. What's a girl to do?
Has anyone else had a problem with their County Code Enforcement Department and short sales properties?
