request. I’ve been told there were plans, but not sure we had plans to formally approve.
But I see there is a plan submitted here which I am seeing for the first time. We were
comfortable with some extensions but since it had been going on quite some time and
there are concerns that even if the third floor and basement remain unoccupied the
issues may affect the rest of the building. That would be the moisture and water
Moermond: it has infiltrated the main floor unit. I see 2018 and 2019 there were some
inspections but it was incomplete.
Imbertson: that is correct, it looks like what happened was the last time this was
approved was in 2016. A renewal process started in 2018 and at the time that inspector
left DSI the file was unassigned in our system and didn’t come back up until recently.
In those years between 2018 and 2022 there was nothing specific the owner was being
asked to do or follow thorugh on, but there was a small amount of crossover with some
items being noted back in the 2018 inspection.
Moermond: Certificate of Occupancy 2016, inspector leaves in 2018, file goes south
with lack of staffing, 2023 it resurfaces. It has been six years, which it would have
been six years same as if it had been a Class A building, which it isn’t.
Jagiela: there are a number of deficiencies that can be corrected, but they have to be
done in sequence. We had hail damage last May to the roof, it’s a tile roof, so it was
hard to find a contractor. I called the couple contractors I knew, who said they were
booked but we could revisit in the sprint. Before I got them out there, I had to get it
settled with insurance, the adjuster supposedly was out there last week. I haven’t heard
from him yet. The problem is the water is coming through the roof, which is causing
plaster damage in the house. Have to fix the roof, then we can repair the plaster. There
are some easy electrical things. I need an electrician out there to do that, but I have
the hardwired alarms. There is a plumbing leak, I’ll get Ryan plumbing out. Then I’ll get
the plaster guy out. I haven’t figured out how to deal with the exterior of the building,
the previous owner painted it, which you shouldn’t do. I could have the paint removed
so the white stucco shows, or I can have it re-stuccoed, which I’m going to look into.
Or I can have it repainted, which isn’t my first choice. I had a painting contractor out
and they said there’s a new breathable paint that would last 10 or 15 years. I assume
that’s cheaper than stucco, but I don’t know. This is a rental property so you hate to
put a ton of money into it because you won’t get it back out. Rent doesn’t cover
extraordinary expenses. It’s a matter of timing, I’ll get bids on the roof and get that
repaired and then I can work on the stucco and exterior. We can’t fix the exterior until
we do the roof because some shingles are broken near the edge of the roof so water
runs down the exterior of the house, not caught by the gutters.
Moermond: what kind of timing are you looking at?
Jagiela: I can’t tell you that because they won’t give dates unless you sign a contract,
and even if you do they change it if there’s bad weather.
Moermond: on number one in your document you say the hail was May 19, 2023, did
you mean 2022?
Jagiela: yes, that is a typo.
Moermond: I have to throw a rope around this to allow the middle to continue to be
occupied. I can’t have an indefinite situation which is where we are at now. Insurance
has taken a look at this. People who you want to work with but no specific bids and
