Is it legal. My kids are disabled. They are not giving them time to come in compliance nor the opportunity to come up to code although there are other properties as bad or worse. Would this be harrassment and what can I do?
It is not harassment. But you must hire a competent attorney to file a Writ of Certiorari in Chancery Court immediately to enjoin and declare the administrative action illegal.
