If you weren't able to attend the April meeting, you missed a lively and informative presentation by Mitch Brendle of Integrity Expediting. Expediters can assist homeowners with a variety of town violations that can hold up the sale of a house (illegal structures like decks, sheds, pools, fences, garage & basement conversions, etc.) They can assist folks trying to buy a house that has potential violations.
