Yes you are. If it was built to code, go to code enforcement and ask them to issue a permit. If not, you will have to remove and update. Of course if the city does not know about it, nothing will happen.

The problem is that you want to keep your tax basis, if the city finds out about it say in 2 years and you retrofit it then, your property taxes will probably go up.

Thank you for your responses. As some of you suspected might happen, my buyer fell through. I did contact a realtor we'd spoken to a couple of months ago and she offered to do the paperwork for 1% of the house price since we had a buyer already. I'm still in contact with her, but since the neighbor isn't buying the house, I have a substantial increase in the amount of cleaning and prep work that will be needed. Rats.

I had been willing to sell the house for less than I could - maybe - get for it in order to avoid a lot of the work (I'm disabled and getting older), but the neighbor's offer was higher than the realtor's suggestion for a listing price. If I could take payments over 3 years he could do it -- but I need the $ to buy my next house.

Because we're rural (though only 20+ minutes from town) comps here are hard to come by and to some degree pricing is an educated guess ... I do wish I could get what I paid for the place in 2004 though!
Again, thank you for the replies.

You best bet in getting the most realistic answer would be to call the local police station. Next, your real estate agent should have some good insight on this as well.

Have you been pre-approved for a purchase loan?

Call the local township municipal offices and ask for their tax department. This is a matter of public record so it should be offered to you.

I can't speak specifically about Oroville - although the SFR market and the Multi-family (apartment) definitely are affected differently. In Santa Clara County, where I work, rents are up, apartment values are up, both in direct contrast to the single family market. This is primarily due to the disappearance of loan programs for first time home buyers. These buyers are shut out of the purchase market due to financing issues and are forced to continue renting. So, in this valley, landlords are very happy and home owners are feeling the pinch. ... more
