In ref to your 06-08 Post. The bank is not required to make any repairs before putting the house on the market. It can be offered "as-is". The bank will decide which is best for their return on investment. If you are a good do-it-yourself person you may make the bank a fire sale offer and get the house at a super bargain because they are not interested in paying taxes on a junker that may be damaged even more by vandals.

Just got the photos after the mod cut family of squatters were removed. They did come back and steal the carport. It was a 14x18 steel carport that I put in when I built the place and it was part of the property. I had used the bottom of the steel as a cement form. So they had to do some work to steal it. Broken windows, blinds, drywall and cupboards. Hope the neighbors know if I could have sold to better people I would have. I am not in control of a sale. It can be fixed but it will take some time and a few bucks. I hope the bank secures it fast, they may be back. People like that will steal the copper wire if you do not secure the place. As far as I can see they have not done that, maybe they do not want to work that hard to get the wire out of the walls. LOL. mod cut

Well at least they have been kicked out, I bet the property values have risen 20% with that alone. Taking the metal carport that was poured into the concrete is a criminal act. It was not their property it was not even the buyers property. But to go after scum for money is like trying to get blood out of a turnip. It would cost more then it was worth. Being they are gone is its own reward. I see after they squatters moved in the sub started a neighborhood watch. Things tend to go missing with bottom feeders around. I wish I could get the agent to get inside and see if bath tubs are broken out ect. That is where the money would be to repair. the ceiling fans have been broken. I don't know how you would even do that unintentional. Its 10 foot ceilings. You really have to be scum low life to break things like that. Sad really, it was a well built home that had the best of everything put in it.

saxon, my final word of advice; Get over it. Buy it or forget it. Stop venting about something over which you have no control .

But it is a criminal act and maybe on the chance they are on parole, something like that might get them back in jail and off the streets. I'd press charges not so much to get money from them, but to add to what is probably already a lengthy criminal record. Of course, I guess only the bank can do that since they own it.

I was in a similar situation and my agent wisely insisted in the contract that property had to be delivered vacant at the time of closing. I was willing to walk if this wasn't the case.

Anyway, they left and although the property need a lot of work it turned out to be a very good deal.

That would be nice, and your correct, taking parts of a home even as the former owner is illegal not to mention a squatter. There are groups of people who are just animals. Its no wonder they never get ahead, and I bet they will draw a welfare check for life. But that is another argument. LOL I am happy they are gone and that Me or someone else may get a chance to buy it and repair the damage. The area is very nice and very close to HSV.
