After receiving a sidewalk violation when street tree roots damaged the bluestone sidewalk in front of their home, homeowners enrolled in the city’s repair program and have been waiting for the issue to be resolved ever since. They’ve been alerted that the repair through the Parks Department’s Trees and Sidewalks Program may finally happen later this year, but they may be putting their house on the market.
Will it hinder a sale to have an open sidewalk violation? Has anyone successfully gotten a repair through the program? How long did it take?
Please chime in with your advice.
