Bought a home and they did not get a permit for the garage!
We bought our home in Dec of 2006. The home has 2 three car garages and we deciced that we wanted to tear one down and rebuild it. We called the zoning office and to our suprise the 2nd garage was built without a permit. We have tried to rectify this and zoning board had denied our request. They now want us to tear the garage down to be in compliance. WHAT CAN I DO? Does the title insurace hold any responsibilty? Or how about the realistate company? I was told my only option was to take the seller to civil court. Please help.
