The house is owned by an out of state owner. His sister died many years ago. He keeps the electricity on but nothing else. Rats are living in and out of the building. Personal items and old food at still there. Wood is rotting and paint peeling. Many neighbors are complaining of the vermin and condition.
This house is going under extensive renovation. Everday we can hear the severe demo and construction. They are doing it at all hours of the day and night. We even called the police once for construction at 11:00PM. Today Saturday morning they have a crew in unmarked trucks cutting the Live oak in the front yard. They got a permit for windows and door and apparently the blind inspectors did not notice the SEVERE demo and construction going on. Please do something.... We are tired of those flippers that do whatever they want with the city "approval" and the inspectors that make blind eyes for gross violations as removing asbestos as already happen with another neighbor when we notify the City. The neighborhood is full of those house traps made with official stamp.
Nothing ever happens with this property. It’s falling apart — there’s piles of garbage in the overgrowth right there in the front yard. Any issue with this property becomes a closed case before anything is ever done. Anyone else in Kenwood would have to clean up their yard and piles of garbage within it. It’s unfair treatment to hold different residents of the city to different standards.
