I have heard about stolen homes but never saw it first hand until I heard about what was going on at 4708 Darrah Street. It has been slated for demolition and yet it was listed as sold to a new owner at the end of July. The signatures of the owners of record were written neatly on the deed however those owners passed on quite a long time ago. The new owners of the property paid the money to some folks who did not own the property in the first place.
Work had been underway to rebuild the house but now there is a stop work order issued until this situation is sorted out. The department of Records has some information on its web page about what to do if this should happen to you. You can see that here.
