Well today was the BIG day, sold my house, resigned from my job and closing eventually. Time to move to Interlachen.HA F#$% HA.
Wilma did the damage, I filed a permit and re- shingled the roof,every thing according to code, duly signed and sealed by the city of Sunrise building inspectors, even told me I did a better job than some roofing contractors and than came the supprise.
As per Florida statute 489.103 a home owner doing a repair which call for a permit (any repair over $600.00) CAN NOT SELL HIS HOUSE FOR 1 YEAR.
So here I am, jobless, money less and no buyer.

Well that sucks. You should speak with a real estate attorney, maybe you can draw up a contract that lets a buyer take possesion but delays the recording of the deed.

maybe they could rent the house till it can be sold and 100% of the rent goes to the purchase. Just a thought.

well, i guess that'll give you time to shop around lol but that really sucks, like stated above, maybe renting it untill it can be sold might be a good idea

Joe-You might want to contact an attorney regarding your predicament. As I read that statute it refers to " building and improving". It would seem to me that since this was the result of a Hurricane, you are performing a " repair". Just a thought.

speak to an attorney. because the job was a hurricane repair & not just an upgrade, there might be legal provisions for that.

the "rent to own" idea sounds good too.

Well I decided to rent the house out for a year, just got back from Interlachen, took a load of my workshop stuff out there. Thursday I will take a load from the house and then one more trip and I will be done.
Thank God the place in Interlachen is paid for, aslong as I can find a renter to pay for the house in Sunrise I should be OK.
Any one now of jobs going around Palatka or Gainsville area.
