Been sitting on an appraisal assigment for over one month. Initial research found the subject property having encroachments on one of the city's lots (west suburb of Chicago).Therefore, the assigment was put on delay. Spoke with building department who stated the city would not permit the property to sell with the encroachment. The subject site had (3) tax identification numbers. The subject site was improved with a duplexed income property on two parcels (small sites) and the garage being on the additional parel. According to the city and a survey supplied to me by the city, the encroachments were a driveway, one entry for the subject building, and the garage. A simple cure was found by the seller purchasing the two adjacent lots to the south of the subject site (cost of the two sites was less than the cure for the encroachments). According to the client, these lots were purchased by the seller and have closed. My gut tells me that this assignment is two appraisal assignments: one for the improved parcel and one for the two adjacent vacant properties. I am still awaiting for instructions on how to proceed with this assignment. If this assignment is for two appraisals, should the vacant parcel (50 ft site) be subdivided to eliminate the current encroachments adjacent to the north? Any sugguestions would greatly be appreciated.
