A woman who was charged with violating Cathedral City (CC) CA Muny Code (CCMC) # 138105, "Illegal Structure", a misdemeanor. Facts: Woman purchased property where the carport area was already converted to an attached room. Recently a disgruntled former tenant reported this conversion to the city authorities who charged woman with the code violation. In CC conversions must either retain the original parking structure or, if new construction, include a 2-car garage. As stated, woman BOUGHT PROPERTY IN CURRENT STATE. QUESTIONS: Was the lender or title co. supposed to warn her that bldg’s form was illegal & would cost money to repair? (2) Is there any way to avoid city compulsion to rebuild the garage & return bldg to original state?Come On Guys. Only one Reply. Let's be creative. Is there no way this poor woman can avoid a costly reconstruction without suing the seller, and even that is a questionable out because of constructive notice issues? Thks.
