Clearwater council dealt with six building infractions last Tuesday.
Showing up or at least making a case about why a notice should not be filed in the Land Titles office appeared to pay off for the majority of landowners involved.
One got a six-month extension, another three months, and one got two weeks.
One case turned out to be a zoning problem, rather than a building inspection violation.
Another was postponed before the council meeting.
Only one of the six ended up getting a notice filed.
Mayor John Harwood noted that the property owners could apply to have the notice removed, once the building infraction has been corrected. A small fee would be involved.
Having a notice filed against their title could affect their property’s value if they try to sell, he said.
Prior to incorporation, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District board dealt with building inspection violations.
