How do I get an Executive Repair Agreement?
Once you have the deed to a property, schedule appointment with the Director of Neighborhood Services & Enforcement to discuss your timeline for repairs on a house that is set for demolition. You may be required to post a bond which is based on the demolition costs.
Once the terms, timeline, and repairs are agreed upon, you will enter an executive repair agreement. When all repairs are completed, you may contact Neighborhood Services & Enforcement to schedule a final inspection. All orders will be removed and the bond will be refunded upon completion, minus any outstanding amounts due to Neighborhood Services & Enforcement.
A repair agreement is made in a meeting lasting approximately one hour with the Director of Neighborhood Services & Enforcement. Once you have agreed and signed the executive repair agreement, the order of demolition will be removed.
You will then be able to pull any permits needed and turn on all utilities. You can contact the Building Department to pull all needed permits.
