Charlotte Co. FL Complaint - So you want to move to Florida AND build a house...hehehehe
FLORIDA -- You may want to think twice. It seems the State of Florida is more concerned about the manatees and mangroves than fellow man! The State gives a builder up to two years to build a house.....nowhere else in the country does it take that long to build a house. Supposedly because there is such a boom! Not hardly....just understaffed and greedy! In any residential building contract in the State of Florida will you find a beginning date of construction nor will you find an end date! Pretty good deal for a builder and no State regulations to protect the consumer. Oh, and you want a building permit? Check the laws daily as they are subject to change without notice. You want a return phone call......forget it. No one in the State knows what that means. Want information from the government here.....again, understaffed and under-educated. If you ask the same question of 10 people, you get 10 different answers.
Florida knows it's called the "fraud friendly" state. You've been warned. Caviat emptor!
