An order given by code enforcement officer to property owner to mow his lawn is one of the most major problems. After a number of days, the officer checks whether the lawn has been mowed only to find that it has not yet been mowed. The officer later takes the case to a special magistrate who listens and decides that a fine need to start accruing if the order is not complied with within a fixed period. After the specified number of days lapse, the property owner begins to be charged a fine daily until when the problem is sorted out. The homeowner remits the money charged to the municipal up to the time the problem is solved.
The property owner mows his lawn without consulting the city after he comes from a vacation. He later realizes after so many years that his property has fines that have been accumulating when he wants to sell the property. The investors gets the opportunity to re-negotiate the liens connected to non- safety to create justice in the property.
