You should renegotiate the price.
After you close do a public records request. You’d be amazed at what can be “found” once they look for it.
Most City/County folks will rely on “Policy” as opposed to law. They do not want to dig. I suggest you have an attorney draft the PRR and give them a deadline to produce all documents related to the property.
We had a deal that was “18” spaces, but the city would only certify “10” spaces. We told the seller that unless he can provide written documentation that the park is legally approved for 18 units we would need a price reduction.
We negotiated a HUGE price reduction.
Funny thing happened, as soon as the City found out that the Seller sold the park they were willing to allow us to put in more units. Apparently, the previous owner was very litigious/Nasty and always had his attorney down at City Hall bossing them around. We showed up with a box of Donuts and their whole attitude changed. Yes, Literally a box of Donuts got us from 10 units to 14 Units. The city is very happy with what we have done in the park and I am hopeful we will get all 18 units “re-approved”. We may not get all 18 units back due to Septic restrictions, but we easily went from a 10 space park to a 14 space park.
That was the highest ROI I have ever had. $10.00 for 12 Donuts = 4 spaces at $37K a space.
14,000% ROI lol…
