Damage and Reconstruction
If a cottage, boathouse or dock is damaged and has to be taken down, there is a limited time within which it must be reconstructed. If one of your old docks fall apart, don’t delay in getting it rebuilt, or you may find you have lost to right to have it with any grandfathered rights to location or coverage. Simply having the cribs still sitting in the water is not enough. Check with your Municipality to know what the time limit is you have to maintain your grandfathered rights to coverage or location. You would hate to have a situation in which you have lost some of the value of your property because you were not timely in rebuilding a dock or outbuilding in a grandfathered situation.
