Vagrant living at this address

Asked by Sknight, Orangevale, CA Tue Sep 23, 2008

I am the previous owner that lost this home to foreclosure and the house was sold at auction. I do not have the telephone number of the attorney that posted the eviction notice or I would call him to alert him that a vagrant has taken up residence in this house. What can I do to find the attorney or the new owner's info?

I agree that you might contact the police, but I'm not sure what they can do. The vagrant could say that they are 'house sitting' for the new owner, and who's to say otherwise if they can't reach the actual owner?

If you contact your previous lender, and ask to speak to the asset preservation department, or the REO department, you might be able to reach someone who is responsible for the property.They would be my personal choice in trying to let someone know of the situation. The property is most likely in the process of being transferred to an asset manager, and then assigned to a realtor for going up for sale. The asset manager will direct either a service, or the realtor to secure the property, and eventually put it back on the market.

It sounds like it's in transition at this time but I'm positive it won't be for long. The cities/counties are charging hefty fees for properties that are not secured, and maintained to a minimum standard (lawns mowed, etc) in terms of fines. So banks are quick to set up those services once they obtain ownership to foreclosed homes.

Hmm...You could visit the County Recorder's Office and find out...or (this may seem obvious), but you might try calling the police or code enforcement?
