-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Is this a rental property or a home you own?
Who caused the defects and was it intentional?
Bought a home where the former owners left marks in the wood, it needs new wallpaper,
I wanted to just move and let it sit empty but it will deteriorate, is that a crime? i was planning
to possibly pay off the mortgage and let the property taxes accumulate then it would
be foreclosed on and I would not own the home after three years. The marks might have
been intentional but not by me.
-Could you explain your situation a little more?How were you able to assume the mortgage?
Did the former owner have permission from the lender to sell the house to you?
Bought it like anyone would buy a home and it was damaged after that but
before we moved in.
So letting the house sit abandoned is or is not a crime? Letting it deteriorate? The mortgage
would be paid and the foreclosure would be for taxes so I no longer owned the home. I would
'not pay them in order to not own it since I don't want it and feel it won't sell and want to live
