Foreclosed Homes Being Stripped
By their owners and it isn’t a crime in many places like Florida. Many bought homes they couldn’t afford so they are as responsible as the banks but I guess they are fed up with empty promises such as loans being modified, short sales taking forever, etc. My thoughts are that it is ridiculous especially since many of these homeowners get to live in the home for over a year for free.
“If the homeowner sells the components to the house while they still own the house, that’s not a crime,” said Officer Bill Cassell, a spokesman for the Las Vegas police. So too in Florida, another state swamped by foreclosures. Several prosecutors and police agencies there said that unless laws were modified, such behavior would have to be sorted out between borrower and lender in civil court.
