Mohave County condemning homes built pre 2008
Pre 2008 we could build in the County without having any building inspections and we were not required to comply with codes. NOW they CONDEMNED my neighbor's home, permitted in 1998!
Mohave County condemned my neighbor's home
The County now requires ALL houses to comply with the International Property Maintenance Code. Because the County changed the rules as of 1/1/2008 (requiring blueprints and building inspections), our rural area has been in a depression since 2008. Few can afford to build anymore and most new residents opt for DANGEROUS mobile homes. And now the County is threatening just about ALL home owners, demanding upgrades costing tens or maybe even hundreds of thousands of dollars OR demolition.
Request for information regarding Mohave County condemnations and demolitions to Tim Walsh
Supervisor Jean Bishop abandoned my neighbor, handed him over to Tim Walsh for more inspections. I got absolutely no response regarding the many issues I previously addressed.
