I live over from 654 Crescent Lake rd, and this piece of sh!t house is bringing our neighborhood values down. The white trash people that have lived there over the past decade or so have let it fall into ruin, the roof is ready to fall off and you can smell it a block away. The backyard was left full of trash and rusted crap. Listed at just under $30,000, this roach motel needs to be condemned before some crap ass people move in and make it even worse.

I have a house next to me that has been abandoned (cardboard sign in the window states "for sale cheap")for 2 years and now the local kids have found that it is a great place to party at night. I call the cops once a week. Unfortunately I do not notice the punks until they are leaving and the cops aren't too fast around here. I am wondering who I can call to get the house condemned or torn down. There have been people looking at the crap mound but I keep scaring them off pointing out the fact that the siding has been undercut, the counter tops are press board, and the windows are all broken out because the kids are in there frequently at night. I don't want an unsuspecting young person to buy it and be taken for a ride, but I want it to be cleaned up or taken down.

I am a single mom full time college student. We are staying in what should have been condemned long ago. I have done major work to it but still should be condemned. The owner who gave us permission to stay, now wants to increase my rent!!! There are several windows out in the house that I have been heating all winter to keep her things from becoming even more damaged. I can not do enough fast enough and now more rent? I want to move and call the city. Will they condemn it for her?

Your name says it all. Just move out. Why do you want to call the city and make things hard for her? It's because your a little entitled princess. You knew what the house was like when you moved in, and you did "major work", butt can't fix a window? Plus you don't even work but are a full time mooch student who is mooching off the taxpayers. Not to mention that because of your selfish princess mentality, now your kid doesn't have a father. But i'm sure you'll say that it's not your fault, just like everything else in your life. You're one of the takers. You'll live your whole life never having contributed anything of value to anyone

Landlord and city official in my own experience and opinion are in it together. Really does anyone care? I proved by testing mold issues on Chrysler dr. city official found no evidence. House was rented to me without me knowing it was even up to code over six months of hell. Basically I paid the rent/house to be up to city code as well.
