MERIDIAN COMPLEX: Condo owners on hook for developer's code violations

County also bills couple for inspection


Amy and Frank Taddeo bought their Las Vegas condominium on the assumption it met building codes.

When they recently began to suspect that American Invsco -- which converted the complex from apartments to condominiums -- had violated county building codes during the remodeling, the couple called county building inspectors.

This week, the Taddeos learned that for their trouble, the county is billing them more than $600 in investigation fees and holding them responsible to fix several electrical violations that inspectors found June 22 at their Meridian condo.

Some violations involve work that was done without building permits or inspections. All involve work that occurred after the original construction.
