this is serious;
Owners of abandoned homes - even those that have filed bankruptcy, faced foreclosure, divorced, or who've lost their job - face fines of up to $10,000.00, loss of driver's license, and 30 days in jail for each property they own. In the case of 78-year old James Mader, owning two investment homes meant forty-five days in a Cleveland jail.
WHY IT MATTERS;
If you think owning a vacant or abandoned home is no big deal, you should think again. Did you know that abandoned homes destroy communities by increasing crime and blight, lowering property values, and encouraging gang and drug activity? We'll show you the REAL COSTS that neighborhoods pay when too many homes become abandoned.
As local governments do all in their power to reduce the staggering vacancy rates that have decimated urban and rural America, one thing is crystal clear: what you’re doing is not working. Learn what works.
REPORT VACANT HOMES.
Children are dying in abandoned homes while owners of abandoned homes are being jailed while cities make excuses and blame Wall Street. Have we had enough? Anonymously report vacant homes in your neighborhood and we will take it from there.
