I need some help please!!

I am trying to get a permit for my pool. After 2 years of harassment, jumping through fiery hoola hoops and thousands of dollars later, I still do not have said permit, why because of 2 open co's from 1952.

A little back story, I am the tenant in the home. We spoke with the landlord and got the ok to get a pool. Stupid me listened to the pool company and never researched to get a permit. Now we get hit yet again with the town being called on us because of a grouchy neighbor. (This is an on going thing)

Well I offered to pay all these fee's since it was my error. I get everything done, (it took 2 years) but its done. Now they pulled up 2 open permits from 1952 and are demanding almost 2K. This was done prior to my landlord purchasing the property. Does my land lord really have liability for these permits (convert car port to garage and build back patio) and is there some sort of limitation that says hey, you didn't follow up with in a reasonable time so 70 years after the fact is not cool? Please help before I shoot myself!!

There is no statue of limitations when it applies to government. Laws are written by the government, tend to favor the government!

How is it incorrect? Exaggerated maybe.

Any attorney will tell you this.

Eminent domain statues favors state residents? Depends....

Adverse possession does not apply to state or local entities but applies to us.

Try suing a government entity....whole new set of rules and regulations.

Spoken by someone who truly has no knowledge or legal background.

There are statue of limitations and they are enforced so please don't give out inaccurate information. Not sure if and what they are in the Ops case.

Please research case law because there are plenty vs the US government where the US government lost

Please provide some references applicable to Town of Oyster Bay or even Long Island.

I have yet to hear about a case where they just agreed to close open permits without some sort of a fight or penalty.

I would call an expediter at this point. Not sure why OP would want to invest in a pool for a rental home, but that's a different story.

Permits in TOB stay open until you close them...if they are long dormant (as yours appear to be), you will have to pay a fee to extend them before closing them. Seeing as you are the tenant and not the owner, it shouldn't really concern you...

His statement was more general than long island but government and SOL in general so my point stands.

Sorry but i won't be doing free research for you.

I don't need it, but since you're talking about "statue of limitations" in such a blanket sense in a LI forum I would have thought you knew something. Apparently not.
