Asked by Edna, Lynwood, CA • Thu Sep 22, 2011
An garage wall was extended to make the garage longer, approx. in the 1950s. Now the city wants the addition torn down because the wall sits on the property line, as do many other structures on the same street. The 5' setback rule was not in the city rules until many years later. Now, upon sale of the property, the city is demanding the removal of the addition. I heard on a radio talk show that there is a CA state law restricting cities from doing this.
