Stop Work Orders Making Home Lifts Costly

Wayne New JerseyFrom, learns that residents of Finn’s Mobile Home Park are trying to raise their homes after last year’s floods, but the process is being held up by stop work orders from the township. The township requires surveyor’s reports and architectural drawings that are costing residents hundreds of dollars. The requirements have been waived in other communities, but haven’t at Finn’s because of what the township calls non-standard concrete foundations. Others who live in flood zones qualify for home buyouts, but Finn’s residents are not eligible because they don’t own the land. The community owner tells reporters no land surveys or architect drawings are needed for simple lifts made by stacking dry cinder blocks on a concrete slab.
