LAUDERDALE LAKES --
Every apartment and rented home in Lauderdale Lakes will be inspected annually to make sure it’s in good shape and up to code — and the increased scrutiny will cost each owner $150 per unit per year.
It’s the latest attempt by a local city to come to terms with a foreclosure crisis that has seen many single-family homes turned into poorly maintained rental properties. It’s also one of the costliest for affected property owners.
Once again L Lakes has the highest rates anywhere-
- On top of the highest millage rate-
- Extremely high storm water fees paid for no work on canal banks-
- money going to Manny Diez’s company
- Fire fees keep going up
The residents continue to pay- these fees will get passed on to them. Way to go Jon Allen- you and your buddy Kenny Hobbs both getting a cut on this?•••
