My husband and I are in a contract to purchase a home and during the home inspection it was revealed that the bathroom was added on without a permit. Because this was not disclosed we asked the seller to try and get a permit after the fact. We held off the FHA inspection until this was done. We were told by the owner that the city told them the process would be up to 21 days. On the 22nd day I asked our realtor if she had heard anything and I get an email back saying we need to read this letter she attached from the city and sign that we read it and agree with it. This is what it says:Dear Sir,
This application for a permit to remodel a Florida room and add a bathroom cannot be approved due to the fact that the project was completed three years ago, is not compliant with the 2007 Florida Building Code, and the proper inspections cannot be performed. The City of Largo Building Department will archive a copy of the unapproved as-built plans and acknowledges that this project is complete. No further action will be taken by the Building Department.It makes me wonder what in the world was going to take 21 days.... this letter? Also, will we still have an issue with the FHA inspection? Will they accept this? I don't want to pay for the inspection and lose more money on this house if this won't be acceptable. Any advice will help!
