    Contractor has made major renovations and additions to homes without required permits. When asked to provide permit verification, he replied that he "doesn't pull permits' and "the City is stupid." When informed he would be reported to the City of St. Petersburg, he became angry and threatening.

    Contractor is Laszlo Harangozo of Laszlo Construction, LLC, CGC #059782. Several complaints have previously been filed with the City and he is still working.

    His address is 2820 West Bay Ave, Tampa FL, 33611. Phone number is 727-804-6553.

    Currently non-permitted work, including a new addition, is being done at 653 53rd Avenue South. He owns this property and is attempting to sell. He recently had a contract to sell, but buyer cancelled when it was revealed that he had not obtained required permits. He is still trying to sell the property.

    Also, he gutted and renovated 2400 HIghland Street South recently. The property is owned by Jonathan Agi, 9954 Innisfree Drive, Johns Creek, GA 30022. This property was listed on MLS as U7813317. It, too, was under contract and cancelled when it was discovered required permits had not been obtained.

    Previous complaints regarding permit violations have been filed in the past with the City of St. Petersburg and there has been no response.

    Please take action as soon as possible. He can usually be found at 653 53rd Avenue South, St. Petersburg.

    Do you have my email address? I wish to be kept informed on this matter.
