No, this is not an alarmist blog entry about Jon Huntsman’s support of civil unions for gay couples. That’s not the subject of this blog.
What I’m referring to is the stripping of units that are being foreclosed, which I blogged about last month, when I was live blogging from Palm Springs.
KSL is reporting that some foreclosed homeowners in Utah are stripping and/or vandalizing their foreclosed homes. According to the article, “Michael Leavitt, a home inspector, says the bigger problem comes when people buy foreclosed homes at an auction and don’t actually see the house.”
(The article didn’t say, but I don’t think that’s our former governor Michael Leavitt, although sources do say that he recently lost his job…)
Apparently here, as in Florida, both theft and/or vandalism occasionally follow foreclosures. Once again, vigilance and observation of foreclosed units seems to be prudent.
