Will You Have To Repair Your Broken Sidewalk Before You Can Sell Your Home?

A year ago I posted about the Mayors Big Plan Could Cost You $7,000! Mayor Villariago wants to take the burden of fixing 4,600 miles of dangerously broken city sidewalks from the city to property owners. The plan is to make it mandatory at the point of sale – Good idea Mr. Mayor, make it even harder and more expensive to sell your home - ever heard the expression "Timing is everything". Villariagosa has recommended in his 2009-2010 budget that the burden of repairing sidewalks land squarely on property owners whenever a home is sold. Click here for the details and information on how to stop this very expensive change. Well IT'S BACK!!!!


The city of Los Angeles may soon stop fixing our broken sidewalks and put the cost squarely on the shoulders of the homeowner. Hmmmm...if the homeowner is responsible for fixing them are they also responsible if someone trips and falls because it wasn't fixed? Will it become another added expense when you want to sell your home?
