There’s a foreclosed house in our neighborhood with a very nasty swimming pool. It has frogs, mosquitoes, and who knows what else. What can we do about that?

This can be a serious problem, especially from a health and safety standpoint. Abandoned homes often have inadequate fencing, which means a child could enter the property and becoming trapped in the pool. Also, Texas is not immune to the West Nile virus, so you certainly don’t want any mosquitoes breeding in your neighborhood.
The property owner is liable for any injury that occurs on the property. In most cases of foreclosure, that’s a bank.
We offer a safety remediation service for abandoned pools. If you would like to notify the mortgage holder of our availability, or put us in contact with the mortgage holder, we’ll be happy to offer a quote to make the pool safe for your neighborhood.
