SUNRISE - William Daeder has passed his home inspection. Sort of.

A Broward judge gave the Sunrise homeowner with the messy yard a week to clean up after the city filed a lawsuit forcing the issue.

His deadline: today.

Three city code officers showed up at his house at 9 a.m. Monday armed with cameras. A Sunrise police officer came along to keep the peace.

Daeder, who is facing more than $200,000 in liens, may get an extra day to finish the job.

"He's 90 percent in compliance," City Attorney Stuart Michelson said after reviewing photos taken by the code officers.

Daeder still has to remove dozens of cinder blocks and clean up his jacuzzi and pool. Code enforcement will be back Tuesday to check things out.

After buying the house in 1988, Daeder never had problems with the city until after Hurricane Wilma destroyed his roof. Then the violations started piling up.

His divorce in 2003 didn't help.

What would his ex-wife say of the mess his house is in?

"She'd shoot me," Daeder said with a chuckle.

I'm not sure how the roof destruction gave way to overgrowth and junk vehicle and appliances in the yard, but whatever. I'm just trying to get our new forum going.:)
I find it very funny that a cop had to come to "keep the peace". Maybe they needed someone armed to shoot any potential rats?

I'm sure his neighbors are glad to see it looking better. That mess was probably crawling with rats. Just imagine trying to sell your house living by that pile of crap.

he doesnt have rats cause he has ten feral cats about the place
and stinking up the neighbors flower beds
- he is a jerk for letting his place go to "prove a point"
with the city
I used to live next to this lazy drunk
and I hope god punishes him by giving him kidney failure
since the city is inept and unable to to anything
-- I got 400,000 for the house next door
i should have gotton 600,000 for it
i lost money because of his antics
he says he is trying to keep property values down so people do not have to pay high taxes - what a jerk
