Required (Necessary) Work

Must apply for and receive a Certificate of Occupancy from the City of Southfield
When this certificate is issued, the city will cut the approximately $1,400 lien in half.
In 2013, damage from a cooking fire in the kitchen was repaired. The individuals who performed the repairs pulled a permit, but the city has informed me that the walls were closed prior to the final inspection having occurred. Thus, the permit expired without a final inspection having been performed. Thus, a new fire repair permit needs to be pulled and a final inspection must occur. For this inspection to occur, a wall or two in the kitchen area must be opened up and then closed after the inspection.

Before the roof was replaced, water leaked into one panel of drywall on the second floor. That panel of drywall was pulled out, but has not yet been replaced.  The first floor bathroom is incomplete.

Optional Work

When the foundation was repaired, flooring on the first floor suffered slight bowing. Thus, replacing the flooring on the first floor might be desired.
The third floor was converted into a bedroom with a half bath at some point in time, but said work was not permitted. The bathroom fixtures were therefore removed. It might be beneficial to simply obtain a permit for the addition and reinstall the half bathroom upstairs.
