OK, I still don't see you coming into the chat here, so I'll try to provide some general information.

...

If they've (they city) already gone through the legal process to be demolished, You can go to the city council. ... And then if that doesn't work, file an injunction with the County Common Pleas Court to stop the city.

...
They likely have a process and timeline like Butler County (which I'm familiar with) ...

...

In a case I'm familiar with, first, they determined, on Jan. 7 that the house should be torn down and a demolition order was posted on Jan. 9. ... Then Home America, any lien holder, or anyone interested in buying the home had until Jan. 29 to file an appeal, but no one did.

...

a pretty short time line...

...

Your best bet, at this point, is to file an injunction with the County Court of Common Pleas ... You might plea, that since you were not made aware, and you were a listed owner, your procedural due process rights have been violated.

...

Let me now if you have questions, and we can go from here

Depending on who you bought it from, the property may have been sold to you sold “as is.”

...

If that wasn't disclosed you may have recourse against your seller then you may have recourse.

...

Either you signed for it, and the seller disclosed it (information about the demolition) OR your seller may have committed fraud.

If you CAN get the demolition stopped through injunction, then your next step is to bring it up to code

...

Please let me know what questions you may have
