The Lee County Property Appraiser has announced that the deadline to submit evidence that your home is affected by toxic Chinese drywall is September 18, 2009. Click here for more information. Upon submitting such evidence, you may be able to obtain a reduction of 50% off the just value of your home, according to a memo released last week.
I will be looking into other counties’ policies and hopefully posting some more information on this issue, so stay tuned. If you have information about the requirements of any other counties that are making adjustments for Chinese drywall-related issues, please feel free to post a comment.

The first Chinese drywall lawsuit begins this month, and here is some good information on this ongoing issue: http://www.chinese-drywall-answers.com/ Among other problems, people living with Chinese drywall have suffered eye, respiratory, and sinus problems that may be linked to the gases emitted from defective Chinese drywall that produce a sulfurous odor and permeates homes, causing metals, including air conditioning coils and even jewelry, to corrode. Some 500 million pounds of Chinese drywall was imported into this country since the late 1990s, impacting about 100,000 homes.
