The risk would be if it were not reconstructed correctly. Not sure why this would still be opened...that means it was never inspected by town to sign off on it. This permit needs to be closed and you should have a Engineer look at the home to make sure it is structurally sound. Please have your attorney advise you on your next steps in this process. AC&E Home Inspection Corp. does a awesome job and they have Inspectors and Professional Engineers on staff. You can reach them at 631-205-1340 as they are local to Coram.
