Suncoast REIA
General Meeting

Tuesday, November 3, 2020


Networking starts at 6:00 pm
Featured Presentation: 7:30 pm

"While We Have The Expert In The Room- Ask Questions! Rent Relief Covid, Code Violation Hearings And More!"



Presented by:

Hillsborough County Code Enforcement Officer

SREIA hopes all have faired well and stayed safe during this awful pandemic. Hopefully, happier and more "back to normal" days are ahead. SREIA will hold the General Meeting on November 3, 2020, and hope to see all our members and invite any guests that would like to join us.

The Covid-19 virus has even made its way into Real Estate Investing! How has Covid affected you as an Investor/Landlord since the "stay on evictions/rent relief" was implemented? How have the Code Enforcement hearings been impacted and what can you do to help your case? What needs to be done to get back to normal - will we ever?

David Cansler, of Hillsborough County Code Enforcement, will be back with us as our quest speaker on November 3. David always eagerly accepts our invitation to come visit us at the SREIA meetings to update us on the latest issues that are occurring at the present time. Following his recommendations, helps us to avoid code enforcement violations. We feel fortunate to have access to such valuable information that can affect the investor whether they are a flipper, rehabber or landlord. As you know, Covid has had a huge effect on our local government departments, as well as the Code Enforcement Department. David has a lot to tell us about the Covid effect and how it has changed operations. Various situations will be discussed such as:

How Covid has affected the real estate investment business, especially since the Tenant Eviction Rent Relief was implemented? What is the latest on Code Enforcement Violation Hearings scheduled that you need to attend? What needs to be done to get back to normal? And much more information that you may want to ask about.

Please bring questions and comments about any real estate related information. Ask about evictions, are tenants responsible for anything, squatters, fake rental leases, violations, lawn height regulations, vehicles on lawns, HOAs, permits, how much roof work requires a permit, do window replacements require a permit, does tearing down an inside wall require a permit, outside wall, adding a garage, adding a bath, tile flooring, any kind of flooring need a permit, upgrading a kitchen or a bathroom, adding a porch, pouring a concrete driveway, septic tanks, well water drilling and pumps, what does not need a permit, bandit signs, and more.

We need to know the answers so rehabbing can go smoothly, but the only way to know is ask these questions while we have the expert in the room. We all learn when we all share! Come Tuesday night to meet, network, connect and help each other succeed in Real Estate Investing!
