   § 23-27.3-124.2  Notice of unsafe

condition. –

When the whole or any part of any building, sign, or other structure shall be

declared to be in an unsafe condition, the building official shall issue a

notice of the unsafe condition to the owner of record describing the building

or structure deemed unsafe, and an order either requiring that the building,

sign, or structure be made safe or be demolished within a reasonable,

stipulated time. All notices and orders shall be in writing and shall be

delivered to the owners of the building by the building official or his or her

designated agent or shall be sent by registered or certified mail to the last

known address of the owner or owners. Orders to demolish any building, a sign,

or structure shall also be issued to all mortgagees of record. If any owner or

mortgagee cannot be located after due and diligent search, the notice and order

shall be posted upon a conspicuous part of the building or structure, and the

procedure shall be deemed the equivalent of personal notice. When a building or

structure is ordered secured for any reason by the building official, the owner

shall board the building or structure in accordance with § 23-27.3-124.6

within seven (7) days, or the building official may cause the necessary work to

be done to secure the building or structure. The cost of the work shall be

billed to the owner and be a lien against the real property as provided in

§ 23-27.3-125.7.
