If the homes are bank owned... eventually, when the local municipality threatens fines for code violations, they might get around to doing it. Are you saying you are a tenant and you occupy the only house in the subdivision? Must get awful quiet at night. Enjoy the privacy I guess. Always a different perspective. Call the city or county in which you live and complain. Good luck.
You might consider taking pride in where you live, be the leader and go mow the grass once amonth at each abandon property. Who knows you might develop a group that changes the face of a whole community by just starting at one house a month..
