The county the county what they really care about is square footage. I'm just gonna tell you. Now, do they really care about how was constructed whether or not it meets code? They will say they do. And that's the pretense on under which they come out. But the true reason is because if you're adding square footage, you're adding. More tax money more tax dollars. That you owe the municipalities. Let's see what I'm saying. So all right. The truth is they may already know somewhat because neighbors call you know, when I was thinking of that, they must have aerial views. Well, if they've done a new assessment, they may have aerial views, and they may actually be taxing on the new square footage. Even though they don't know really how much it is. Sometimes they guess I look in these tax records, and I'm thinking that person has does not have that amount of square footage. So sometimes I guess, but I would just call the county and ask them some questions and say if someone has done some work, and it's not permitted, and I want to buy it. What's my safest route? How that's great. I thank you for the information. I'm not gonna hold you know, you have. No, no, thank you for your call. That's really important. Good information. Thank you. All right.
