One of the most popular problems is when a code enforcement officer gives order to the owner of the property to mow his lawn. After a number of days, the officer checks whether the lawn has been mowed only to find that it has not yet been mowed.The officer then forwards the case to a special magistrate who hears and determines that a fine should start to accrue if the violation is not dealt with within a fixed number of days. After the particular period gets over, the homeowner begins to have his fine accruing daily up to the time he fixes the problem. The homeowner remits the money charged to the municipal up to the time the problem is solved.
The property owner mows his lawn without consulting the city after he comes from a vacation. He later realizes after so many years that his property has fines that have been accumulating when he wants to sell the property.The investors take the opportunity to re-negotiate the liens related to non-safety to create equity in the home.
