Man Fined By Arlington Over His Foreclosed Home

The truck driver used to live in Arlington, but two years ago his house was foreclosed. Englett hasn’t lived there since.

Last July when he tried to renew his license he found out he had outstanding warrants. “I don’t want to go to jail over nothing – never been to jail – don’t want to go to jail.”

The warrants were for operating an alarm without a permit, another for an old fence and one for the grass not being cut. “I didn’t live there, so why would I worry about it the bank foreclosed on it,” explained Englett “Even when I lived there we never activated the alarm.”

According to the City of Arlington, if the title hasn’t changed then you’re still the owner and responsible for everything on the property.
