Step 1. County inspector comes to your property and writes a violation like, I dunno, he sees a kitchen chair on the back porch so he cites you for running an open dump. (Actually happened).
Step 2. Notice is mailed to the property which of course is quickly discarded by the guilty tenant.
Step 3. No further effort is made to notify the property owner.
Step 4. Property is sold at annual tax auction for the cost of the unpaid $100 violation the property owner is unaware of to a local Baltimore County atty whose practice consists soley of buying tax sale properties.
Step 5. Baltimore County Atty ( Who is probably in cahoots with the inspector) holds the property rights until the rightful owner tries to sell the property or becomes otherwise aware of the issue.
Step 6. Baltimore County Atty charges in excess of $3k to cover his 'costs' from Step 4 ($100).
Step 7. Angry property owner hires his own Atty to fight back.
Step 8. Baltimore County court clerk 'misplaces' the paperwork.
Step 9. Baltimore County judge dismisses.
Step 10. Dig is out $3k to save his property.
Step 11. Baltimore County Inspector, Atty, Clerk and Judge all have a big laugh and probably split the $3k.

This happens THOUSANDS of times a year in the county according to our Atty.

We got pwned.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Wow that's horrible!
When I first moved into my house I got cited for the front porche being torndown for renovation. The inspector never bothered to see if I had a permit on site or in his systrem. I get a citation for $1000 a day after some dealine, no joke. I call the inspector but can't get hold of him so I leave a message about my name and address. He sends me another citation for paint for another 1K.
