From the Queens Courier:
Wendy Bowne, President of the Richmond Hill Block Association (RHBA), said that she, as well as other local residents, has been asking for action at 87-41 110th Street – a graffiti-strewn home with multiple Department of Buildings (DOB) violations – for months.
The two-story shingle home, with two bedrooms and one bath on each floor, sits on a 25’ x 100’ lot, according to Achievers, the real estate agency that is trying to sell it. The asking price is $299,000, though the home is not in a livable condition.
Between April 2004 and January 2006, according to the DOB, five violations were issued to respondent Inshanall Bibi Farid, including “Work without a Permit.”
Andy Ally of Achievers explained that they are attempting to do a “short sale,” meaning the lender is accepting less than the total amount due.
As recently as last week, Bank of America, the servicer of the home’s mortgage, received an offer of “short sale,” according to Rick Simon, spokesperson for Bank of America Home Loans. He said that, despite what many think, the home is not, in fact, in foreclosure.
