I replaced a rotting beam in the center of my covered porch

i replaced a rotting beam in the center of my covered porch roof that was built in 1909. I didn't think about getting a permit. I had the beam load calculated by a steel company and put in a steel beam 6 times stronger than the original rotted sagging beam. A neighbor turned in a complaint. I've already paid a $1000.00 fine and applied for a building permit and prepaid the fee. Now they want a ridiculous amount of engineering and work done. What can they do if I do nothing.

Law Educator. Wishing you well in the New Year. I want to

Hi Law Educator. Wishing you well in the New Year. I want to participate in a county tax sale. I just realized that there's a property sitting in the county that's been on the county's foreclosure rolls for probably a decade. Now, the county's rules regarding tax sales state that you can't participate in a tax sale if you have a delinquent property outstanding. The property is worthless and I don't want it back. If I bid using my corporation , would I be in compliance with this rule?

I am foreclosing on a second deed of trust that has a

I am foreclosing on a second deed of trust that has a balloon payoff that is long overdue. I have warned the Trustor several times in back-and-forth emails over the last 13 months. I have handed over the foreclosure process to SBS Trust Deed Network to handle the process. I just mailed a registered "breach letter" with return receipt. SBS says I needed to send the letter and wait 30 days before they will file the NOD. Are we still living in the dark ages where the US Postal Service is needed to communicate legal issues or will my email "breach" notification suffice so I can file the NOD now without waiting 30 days?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And has any paperwork been filed?Customer: California. Nothing filed yet.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No. I'm just basically asking for a yes or no.
