Cinnamon Says...

I wrote a thank you note to Cinnamon from Gaper's Block for the unexpected write up on Friday (4/28). This was her reply:

You're welcome and your writing is news-worthy. I haven't read every post but I came a cross your blog when looking for information about how to handle deadbeat developers. A couple of friends were the first ones to buy a condo in a courtyard development and have had nothing but problems. I thought a few quick searches might find some articles or links where they could get more information about how to handle their situation and your site was at the top of the list. I passed it on to them and realized that there are likely to be many people with similar issues. The real estate market seems to be given safe distance from local journalists and I don't think the industry deserves it.

At our last condo we found out three years* in that the "new plumbing" that had been installed was not installed per city code even though a city inspector approved the installation and it was causing recurring problems when it would rain.

Keep writing, keep exposing, and good luck getting resolution in Woodlawn.

*One correction---the plumbing problem was discovered after 1 1/2 years after buying, not three.

With encouragement like this how can the quest stop now? Bob Goulet in full effect, yo!

If you haven't noticed, Gaper's Block has now been added to the list of Chicago links on the left hand side of the blog.
