Customer Question
Hi Pearl. Doing...

Hi Pearl. Doing some research on a Florida specific property. I found a good deal on a property, bought it in the name of an S Corp, performed cosmetic rehab (flooring, cabinets, replace plumbing and lighting fixtures, paint). Now being harrassed about a permit. Also, not a licensed contractor.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

There is an apparent water leak on a bath tub in the property. Don't know the cause. Property was sold with an As-Is contract.
