It is often unexpected and frustrating when you receive notice that your property has a code violation and that, if it’s not fixed, you’re going to receive a fine.
We know what this is like.
At INW Properties, we’ve bought a lot of properties in Eastern Washington and North Idaho with code violations and had to deal with fixing those problems.
So… what are your options?
There are a few different things that can be done if your property has code violations.
The first thing that you can do is try to fix the violation yourself. This may be something as simple as trimming some trees or bushes, painting over graffiti, or fixing a hole in a fence. If the violation is something that is easily fixed, this is probably going to be the cheapest option.
The second option is to hire a company to fix the violation for you. This is going to cost you more money than DIY, but it will save you the time and headache of dealing with it, and ensure the repairs are completed to code.
The third option is to do nothing and hope that the violation goes away on its own. This is a BAD choice. Because it’s not going to go away. Oddly enough, it’s still one that many people choose!
The fourth option is to sell the property. This may be the best option if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of fixing the code violation, you can’t afford to fix it, or the violations are extensive.
In fact, we can buy your property as-is (code violations and all) for a fair cash price and close in as little as two weeks. We’ll even pay all closing costs. Give us a call at 509-828-4270 to get your no-obligation cash offer!
