The house was owned by a landlord before the storm, he sold it. It sold for $35k to a woman who plans to tear it down. The problem with the FEMA process is that if it is in a neighborhood not covered by the Historic District Landmarks Commission or the Housing Conservation Review Committee, then no review of the owner’s plans are on the table in the approval process. We have to check this link to see Damage Assessment Wizard if this meets the FEMA criteria for 50% or more damage. If it seems to be a bad city assessment, we are doing a public request for information to see the inspector’s reports. The search for this property reveals this information:
