Administrative Rule Adopted by Office of Neighborhood Involvement
Assisting customers to legalize significant work that has been done without permit.
Summary of Standards:
The Bureau of Development Services provides assistance to citizens who have property where significant work has been done without permits. This program is called the Get Legal Program.
Neighborhood Inspections refers property owners to the Get Legal Team for assistance when in the course of their inspections they find a property that needs to have significant work legalized. If the property owner applies to the program, the Get Legal Team will determine, on a case by case basis, if the property can be accepted into the program.
Neighborhood Inspection has a representative on the Get Legal Team and may send an additional representative to make a presentation to the Get Legal Team regarding a specific property.
Neighborhood Inspections will suspend liens on properties in the Get Legal Program if requested by the Bureau of Development Services.
