Abandoned Bank Owned (Ocwen) House has Devolved Into a Dump, Neighbors Say
A Dundee house, abandoned and foreclosed upon just two months ago, has literally turned into a dump, neighbors say.
The home is near 51st and Jackson.
Residents nearby say the owners moved out about two years ago.
Records show the bank took possession of the house in August.
Since then, garbage has piled up, rodents have moved in, and the lot has deteriorated into an eyesore.
“Who wants to live next to that?” says frustrated neighbor Randy Stout.
“Rats, raccoons, feral cats, dead mice on the sidewalks,” are what neighbor Deb McKeone says she has seen on the property.
On August first, Deutsche bank took the property in foreclosure, and still nothing was done to clean up the property.
“Now it’s to the point where it needs to be cleaned up and the house sold or torn down,” Randy Stout says.
The bank told us we need to contact Ocwen, the loan servicing company.
Ocwen or its representatives have not returned our request for information.
