Foreclosed House Is Still Yours

New, 10 comments

First it was the buyers that were walking away, and now the walk away trend is hitting banks. Via Cleveland's Plain Dealer: "Renetta Atterberry thought she had lost her East 102nd Street house. So she was shocked to learn in January -- five years after her mortgage company filed for foreclosure -- that it was still in her name. Worse, the long-vacant rental home had been vandalized and she faced a raft of housing code violations. Since then, she has been saddled with debts of about $12,000 to pay for demolition and back taxes." [Plain Dealer]
