Landlord finds 25 tons of trash in abandoned rental home - 13 WTHR Indianapolis

May 09 2016

I had two rentals wind up in similar shape to this one.  Rent stopped coming on a rental where the tenant had some sort of mental breakdown.  The power was off and at night I went to discover what was going on.  I entered the home to a pile of trash and personal belongings strewn about.  Going to the kitchen I heard noises.  Turning the light to the floor I saw 100s and 100s of large sewer roaches everywhere.  I backed out of the home and called in a remediation team.

Lesson learned:  Never lose contact with your property over extended periods of time.  Always keep up on your inspect intervals.
