In Florida, banks who slack on maintaining their properties are getting a taste of their own medicine.

Love stories like this... And no more bailouts since these banks are such lousy risks.

What goes around comes around which is why being fair, compassionate, honest and reasonable are of paramount importance. I feel no pity for the banks. None whatsoever. This is only the tip of their karmic iceberg.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article. Turn about is fair play. Stick it to them Mr. Solomon. Read and joyfully noted.

As Robert O. said "what goes around comes around!." The banks thought laws for the common man do not apply to them...they should be fined more than the common man!

thats the way to do it, they should have let the buyer who's defaulted, stay in to keep it aired and maintained, till a buyer comes along, so serve them right

"One Miami lawyer, Ben Solomon, has filed more than 1,000 liens against banks for failing to maintain their properties or pay their homeowner association fees. And when the recalcitrant banks don’t comply, Solomon slaps them with a foreclosure notice—131 thus far.

Solomon has already won tens of thousands of dollars from some of the nation’s largest banks—and even foreclosed on one mortgage servicing company, NovaStar, for failing to maintain its house in the Keys Gate Community Association in Homestead, Florida."

Sweet justice! Were I a believer in Karma, this would be its definition. :^)

Hope they're successful. The vacant houses should either go back to their previous owners, or to people who need the housing.
