Where is your property located? Is it within city limits? How was your property constructed and an occupancy permit provided without utilities such as water?

I’m 2 miles or less from being in the city. But there is a water line and meter about 700 feet from my property. It’s personal i think
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I truly believe it’s a racial bias
Real Estate Lawyer: Attyadvisor, Attorney replied 2 months ago

Well that is completely unacceptable. If you are not within city limits the county has jurisdiction. Which County is this in Alabama?

This Randolph County n I have spoke with they mayor name Tim Coe. N he blew me off. I spoke to Brian cross whom is accepting your monthly bill and he has given me accuse
Real Estate Lawyer: Attyadvisor, Attorney replied 2 months ago

The mayor is for the city. You need to go to a higher authority. The State Attorney General is the top law enforcement official in the State and you can start by filing a complaint for an investigation with the AG's office. The next step is contacting a county land use Attorney that provides FREE consultations in your area. Give me a few moments to research the matter for you.
