Imagine if you are the bank who took over a house via foreclosure and you proactively speak with Miami-Dade Water and Sewer to pay off the prior owner's unpaid water bill. You'd expect a little cooperation when it comes time to turn on the water for inspections, right?
Well, after the water company refused to turn on the water until the check cleared, I was able to lift the cover and turn on the water myself. The first inspections went off perfectly. Problems arose the next day however, when I needed to have another inspection done.
No water! Why? They had come by after 9PM at night and REMOVED the meter and connection pipe.
Only in Miami-Dade folks... These are interesting times indeed!
