I got a house owned by BONY and serviced by BAC. We just got word the previous tenants were smoking meth in the house. 


Anyone have luck with getting an investor paying to have a property cleaned up prior to closing?

I would think if that were 'documented' and a health/safety issue the bank would have to.
Good luck!  We have a house that hoarders lived in and the bank absolutely refused to clean it up....It is disgusting..we had two different realtors take prospective buyers in to view the home and they got fleas...they were ticked to say the least..neighbors had filed complaints with the city, etc, etc....The only thing the bank agreed to do was mow the 10ft high lawn....everything else they said was the listing agent or sellers responsibility...little bit different scenario...but with Meth...that is different...in Missouri some houses can be condemed unlivable if there is documented proof of meth...
Does the bank own the property?  Or is this a short sale situation?
If this home is owned by Bank of New York and being managed by BofA, BofA has a Health and Safety form that is required to be filled out by the REO agent and if there are health and safety issues they have to be taken care of ASAP
LOL...No Harry..mine was not a meth house..it was a hoarder house...

This is a short sale with BofA. The investor is BONY. The funny part about this is the negotiator told me "Sir the home is sold As-Is, and we wont be paying to have it cleaned up"


Their closing manager, who i know well told me that they should clean it up prior to closing as long as its within reason. Not sure what amount that is. I'm sure if the levels come back higher than 10ppm they'll be scrambling to figure out a solution. Not like they can f/c and turn around and sell it as a BPO without disclosing it.


I gotta think the investor would pay whatever it takes NOW to clean it up vs being stuck with it any longer than they absolutely have to.


I would not think that you will get the servicer or the investor to clean the property, if so it may be a tough one to get done. Use Health and Safety as your problem, I can send a blank H&S form from BofA to you, email me [email protected]

Remember that you are dealing with the servicer and the investor is a different company so the servicer really does not care if it forecloses or not, they get paid to service it.

I think it would also be useful for you to read more useful information about smoking marijuana using inexpensive but high-quality bongs. I found such information freely available on the Internet and I have now bought two glass and one silicone bong for myself. It is very convenient for transportation in a bag. I advise you to try it too. Good luck to you!
