Is this legal?

Asked by Nicole, Brownstown, MI Thu Apr 2, 2009

I know someone that lives by this home. I believe the sold date is the date the home went back to the bank. I believe the previous owner is stripping the home because they lost it. The took all of the brick pavers, kicked the fence in, took the blinds off of the back along with the retractable awning. I have no idea what they are doing on the inside though. Is it illegal for this person to do this and how do you report them?

Sorry to hear this is happening in your neighborhood. Reporting to the police, even anonymously would be the correct action.

No, it is not legal. The house is collateral for the loan that they defaulted on. You could call the police. I am not sure that they will do anything about it because during the redemption period he still has possession of the property. Hopefully the police would stop him and contact the bank so that they can secure the property.

Thanks. I thought it would be something like this. They're not just stealing, they're lowering the value of the property. Ripping off an awning can't look good for the rest of the home. It's sad to see something like this happen to a once-nice house. Hopefully the new owners will get everything looking nice again. |
