Foreclosure Follies

New, 13 comments

A woman in a Studio City "neighborhood of $1 million hillside homes" says she got West Nile Virus from a pool left to fester after its accompanying house was foreclosed on (the owners moved out on Christmas). The bank never responded to complaints about the pool, but the LA County Health Department did send the mosquito abatement people--they've poured bug-killing chemicals into the pool several times, as recently as this month. Man, just imagine the foreclosed-on pools in sub-$1 million neighborhoods. [LADN, image via]
