A quick update on 1520 Hollins Street — thanks to the neighbors who live nearby, a Stop Work notice was posted on the property, and a citation was issued to the homeowner, who was demolishing part of the interior without a permit.
Folks, this is a serious issue in Baltimore. Doing any kind of major work, especially mechanical or structural — especially something like demolition, or digging out the basement — has to be done with a permit. No permit means no inspection, and if you live next door to someone who’s doing this work — your home could be damaged, or worse, if the structural integrity of your home is compromised.
