I do not know the contract laws there, but here in California a builder holds indemnity bonds that are public knowledge. You should go to her bond company and file a claim, out here they are $12,000 to $15,000. You can recoup money that way. Also check your contract, most contractors throw a clause in stating that you must go to arbitration to settle any disputes. Much easier on the pocket book too.

Good luck

I live in Orlando, FL and my monthly utility bill (waste, water & sewage) is roughly about $70 a month.
My mother lives about a mile away and she has a communal septic field, her utility bill is approx. $25 a month. They use the city water but dispose of it via the septic field. I think that this system is great! Here in Orange county Florida, the cost of the water disposal is approximately twice the cost of the water consumption. For example, if my usage cost is $25 my disposal cost would be $50 totaling $75 per month. My mother does have a yearly association fee of $200 for the year and I assume that this is where the maintenance cost comes in, but overall she saves hundreds of dollars a year. Her bill doesn't really fluctuate and she has a swimming pool, we do not have a pool and in the summer when the usage is slightly higher our utility bill may climb to $150. I think that this system is ideal for us. Depending on how your county calculates the usage and disposal of the waste water, should tell you which is the best system for you. communal septic vs. city sewer. ... more

Sometimes it takes up to 36 hours for the changes to take place. This site pulls directly from the public records so you may want to challenge those with the town.

They are as good for resale as a swimming pool.
Some buyers don't mind while other say 'Absolutely not!'

In Florida owners are PROHIBITED from selling electricity they produce. Only Florida power companies can sell electricity. That means there can be no 'selling to the grid' benefits, no income producing potential. The consequence? In Florida, the SUNSHINE STATE, solar is an unwanted orphan.

That leaves only the utility saving benefit as the tangible and the intangible being 'Save the Planet' mission and possible qualification to membership in the Sierra Club and Audubon Society.

Will saving 60% on the electricity bill compensate for those warts on the roof?
Are those warts a badge of honor that coupled with the Tesla makes a statement to society?

If the owner can show an undeniable benefit, (income/saving/society) then it will be good for resale. Otherwise it just a wart with added costs waiting in the future.

They are typically good for 60-90 days depending on the lender. If you haven't found a home during that time the bank can usually issue a new letter as long as nothing has changed with your credit and finances, happens all the time.

Hi, Cortland Manor, Peekskill, Buchanan, Briarcliff Manor, Croton, Chappaqua, Hawthorne, Mohegan Lake, Mt Kisco, Peekskill, Pleasantville, Sleepy Hollow, Thornwood, Valhalla, Yorktown. Some homes in these areas could be septic and well also. Luckily we can search with this specific criteria and only send you homes that match your request.

Have a great day!

Yorktown had decent activity this season but it slowed down drastically now. There are currently 123 homes on the market ranging from $250k-1.7 million in Yorktown/Yorktown schools. So It's safe to say inventory isn't that tight. If you break it down into price ranges that will make a difference. Hope this helps.

Martina Ryan answered:
You know it is overpriced when you are getting very little activity. If you see other similar properties moving & your house is not getting any interest, then it is time to re evaluate and change the price. In my opinion it is better to do it once and do it correctly. You need to drop to market value or even below just to get some interest. ... more
