This is great news! These fees are what give property owners/sells/buyers the biggest pause - how much must they spend to do simple work? Please be careful as you hire contractors, however. IIf anybody offers work on your property, be sure to check with the state of NJ: https://newjersey.mylicense.com/verification/ To see if they are licensed. Contracts over $500 must be in writing. Your rights in dealing with a contractor are here: http://www.njlaws.com/consumer_rights.html?id=119&a= I wish you the very best in your recovery. I have relatives who had 9 feet of water in their homes, and the damage water can do is both beyond belief and expensive to deal with. My prayers are with you.
