Just purchased a property in Miami, built in 1972, sold to second owner in
1985 and now sold to me. House was custom built and has a lot of unique
features but unable to find any plans.
Went to the Dade County buildings department, was told any plans between
1961 and 1972 were on microfiche but those were "eaten up" by parasites and
all gone. Nothing is left.
Last owner is an elderly who had a stroke and cannot remember much, not even
the combination to the floor safe in the house, or much of anything. Looked
through the house and no plans.
Tracked down original owner who is the architect, says he has retired and
closed his business and all plans were thrown out.
Then I started to trace the mortgage lenders...too bad all of those BLAH
BLAH BLAH Savings and Loan Associations no longer in business, only one
survived and have nothing older than 1996 at all.
Any idea of where else I might look to locate any plans that might show
sewer, water, electrical, structural, there are a lot of conduits in the
house for alarms, intercom, central vac, electrical...now everything has to
be done by trial and error and if we have to do any remodeling we have to
hire an architect to redo the plans...not looking forward to it.
Thanks in advance,
