Foreclosed Home ‘Full Of Rats’

GREENACRES, Fla., Sept. 8 (UPI) — A Florida woman said she put up a “house full of rats” banner at a foreclosed home adjoining her own in an attempt to get the bank to clean it up.

Lynn McGee, 62, of Greenacres, said the adjoining house has been in foreclosure since September 2009 but the sale has been met with numerous delays and rats have taken control of the property, The Palm Beach (Fla.) Post reported Thursday.

McGee said she affixed a banner to the window of the home in the hopes of shaming the Bank of New York Mellon into cleaning up the property.

“House full of rats & bank don’t care,” the banner reads.

“I don’t know where to turn next,” McGee said.

    Lynn McGee, good luck in trying to shame New York bankers. She might do better to learn if the ‘Bank of New York Mellon’ had access to Obummer’s bailout(s). If it did, she should seek and get help from the Florida state legislature.
    ‘Long distance experts’ are anything but experts when real estate is infested with rats. It affects property values, and can easily be a health problem. It would be a nice if the head of the Bank of New York Mellon would move into the house next door.
    If the rats win, then the state of Florida can try and appropriate the property. If the head of the bank wins, then local property values will go up, and Lynn McGee will no longer have a potential health problem.
    September of 2009 was a long time ago. Some people in NY, it seems, have little or no banking sense. Call me a pessimist, but I suspect that bank had acess to Obummer’s bailout(s), and is also very reluctant to loan out money. Anybody smell a RAT?
