Lastly, if you suspect that you are a victim of toxic Chinese drywall I strongly suggest that you speak with a real estate attorney!

So, I guess you've received more than just my email about this, huh? I very much appreciate you taking the time to talk to me and share your knowledge. We called the real estate attorney you recommended and he was fantastic.

Thanks again!

Crist signed a Chinese Drywall law last Tuesday that allows affected homeowners to pay either adjusted or no property tax for that year! That might be something interesting to post to your readers. We called the Pasco Tax Appraiser and all that is needed is verification of some sort (letter, work agreement, etc) that your house has chinese drywall! No property tax for us this year! Wahoo!

Mobley Homes in Florida built with Chinese Drywall even AFTER it was known that there was a problem. Worst thing is...they keep building and won't help those homeowners that have it in their homes.
