Mold a problem at foreclosed homes in Rockaway
From CBS New York:
Some Rockaway Peninsula residents say a house damaged by Superstorm Sandy and then left abandoned is posing a health hazard in their neighborhood.
The former owner of the dilapidated home abandoned it immediately after Sandy, leaving everything behind. HSBC took over the house after it went into foreclosure.
The city’s Health Department received complaints and asked the bank to clean up the home.
HSBC told CBS 2 it is looking into the matter.
Photos taken last week showed that nothing had been done.
