Linda, we shouldn't have to do THEIR homework. THEY are supposed to have monitored these situations Read Moreall along. We paid for those services … and now we're the ones responsible for THEIR screw ups.

Please share in writing your situation with Jennifer Ticknor of the NYS Attorney General's Office,Read Morea nd/or hire an attorney from outside of Port Chester to help you plead your case before a judge. Bea has provided the contact information for the AG's office above, including the case number for homeowner complaints. Aidan summed up the current situation nicely. Those of us who have paid the village's fees and played by the rules for decades on end are now being punished by the village whose own obvious negligence, incompetence and apparent corruption got us into this CO/Code Enforcement/Amnesty mess -- much of which may in fact be a pretext for revenue generation. Raising money by the recent blanket-nullification of COs and In Lieu of Letters, all of which were issued by the village and used in thousands of real estate transactions, is beyond unconscionable. It's perverse because of the amount of unnecessary pain it's inflicting on innocent homeowners who cannot sell or refinance without new documentation, which can take over a year to secure. And that's just one example of the problems the village has been causing innocent homeowners. Once amnesty expires, any homeowner who hasn't signed up for it can be fined for the supposed violations of previous owners, going back decades. (Interestingly, the very documents the village says are unreliable will magically be reliable enough for them to fine homeowners.) This all means more pain for homeowners and more revenue for village coffers. There does seem to be a method to the madness currently exhibited by the local powers that be. Please contact Ms. Ticknor.
