Call To Action: Florida Residents and Realtors (R) Everywhere!

Call To Action: Florida Residents and Realtors (R) Everywhere!  by KATERINA AND NESTOR GASSET. READ THIS FOR YOUR OWN FUTURE. THE WORD "NO" IS GETTING OUT OF HAND AND OUT OF THIS WORLD. WE OWN OUR PROPERTY WHICH GIVES US THE ABILITY TO PASS IT ON TO OTHERS WITH A SUITABLE CONSIDERATION. READ THIS. THEN SQUEEK. THE SQUEEKY WHEEL GETS THE GREASE. THANKS, DEB

Florida residents and real estate agents in the U.S. This could be coming to your town so please read this post I wrote today about the Septic Tank issue that the DOH of Florida is trying to get passed. As some of the commenters pointed out; once something like this is done in one state, other states follow.

Please read this post about the Septic Tank Issue in the WSA area in Central Florida.

Here is what a homeowner just wrote as a comment on this post. I wanted to reprint her comment here because this is so important. The DOH would make it so that Monique could not ever sell her house. Most of the time the politicians and government offices do not think through the consequences of their decisions. There is not even enough evidence of nitrogen to even warrant this ruling Please follow Monique's research and link. She has done a much more concise job than I could have ever done to get you the information you need in order to call Governor Crist today to tell him to stop this nonsense.

 

I live in the Wekiva Study Area (WSA) and have been following this assinine issue for five years. I've attended as many meetings as I can to keep myself informed on this issue and have, likewise, tried to keep my neighbors up to date.

Would I be correct in assuming that a seller disclosure would HAVE to reveal that their home is located in the WSA? This area covers parts of Lake, Seminole and Orange County. Their are 55,000+ homes in the WSA on septic. These are 55,000 homes that are being blacklisted by the state without ANY evidence of the nitrogen concentration the state says is in the Wekiva River/Spring. Trust me, I've seen ALL the data.

My home is located just 3 BLOCKS in the WSA boundary. If this becomes law, then that means my home cannot compete with a home just three blocks away in terms of price, considering this upgrade would be mandatory before a sale. In fact, a friend of mine down by Lake Gertrude would have to upgrade her system, while a home right across the street would not because the WSA boundary cuts right down the middle of the street. Folks, this is already law in Wakulla County and something, I fear, will be implemented statewide if it is not stopped right now.

There are, sorry to say, mobile homes a couple of miles away that would NEVER be able to sell, as, let's face it, this $15,000+ septic system would in some cases be about equal to the value of the mobile home. NO bank is going to lend anyone money for this, whether in good or bad economic times.

I thank you for bringing this to homeowner's attention and hope you keep it on the forefront of discussions. I've written to the Governor, Lt. Governor, Department of Health, my state senator among others. My most recent letter is posted on www.ocins.com the Orange County information website. It is chocked full of FACTS that everyone needs to be made aware of, especially those citizens in the WSA. Thank you for your time.

Monique Richison

Thank you Monique for writing this important comment on our blog. You are very passionate about this subject and I hope that we can help homeowners like you to get this stopped now.
