When theres a note on your door...

The Joys of Home Ownership
volume three

So, I arrive at the house on tuesday to work on it, and theres a note on the door. *crap, what now*

The note is from the City of Fresno, and it states "Notice and order to remove public nuisance violations". It also states "The condition of the building upon this property constitutes a "Blighted Building" and it is required that you correct the violations upon the property. The violations must be removed by April 13, and the building cannot be vacant past April 25th."

Oh yeah, and did I mention that the city says we owe them $85 for having to come out & serve the paperwork, $185 for having an unoccupied building, and by the way...we'll owe another $85 for them to come out & inspect the property after the "violations" have been taken care of. *pulling hair out & screaming*

I called the city & spoke to our inspector. Apparently he's seen a lot worse & feels bad for us, but someone in the neighborhood complained & he was required to act upon it. Apparently, us over there working on the house every day just isn't fast enough for them. *Grrrrr*

That sucks. Sounds like you've got some great neighbors.

That is horrible. Some people need to learn how to be neighborly. I hope that it gets better from here.

Have any idea which neighbor it might have been? I'd make cookies for them and "kill 'em with kindness". Do you really have to be in the house by the 25th or are they gonna' let it go?

Well, we have since found out that everyone in the neighborhood say's that one specific person called it in...he is known only as "MR. Perfect". Four seperate households have called him that...apparently he's widely known as a giant pain in the ****.
