I know which permits need to be closed. I've been in the space since Feb. of this year. I'm paying 3600 a month and i have spoken to the building manager and he says "whatever is in the unit is your responsibility". There are even code violations on the threshold of the door (that he knows about that is suppose to be "their responsibility" but they haven't even fixed it. I've been trying to close the permits myself but i'm running out of money and they're already giving me eviction warning notices (that they post on my door so everyone that passes by sees it) 3 days after 1 missed payment. I'm at a loss and i feel like i'm about to lose everything. Even if i go to a lawyer i wont have any money to pay for services.

Too bad a lawyer can't weigh in.

Here the owner of the property is on the hook, not the tenant. This area changes from country to country and city to city but where I live, the open permits are not my problem unless I own the property.

Why you would take care? Its your owner's duty.

Why? Let's use an example.

In reply to: hi

Here in my fair state if there was an open permit for some bad plumbing and I operated my office there, the employees could lodge suit against the business for being exposed to noxious fumes with the open permit as evidence.

Bottom line? Get a lawyer or just forget that site.
