Bottom line is that the property is not yours. Find out who owns the property and get permission before trespassing. You could get arrested if you are caught inside without permission.

You need to be careful here - even if the home is deserted, there are still personal property laws that must be followed.

The banks who hold the note on the property work closely with the local municipalities and courts to ensure proper protocol is followed. Be sure you do not enter any home without consent or else you could be severely penalized and/or arrested.

Typically the Bank or Owner will commission a Company to clean the property.
