It usually happens when homeowners are at work or out of town.
In Clawson, Mich., Nancy Cox returned home to find her possessions in the front yard, smashed with a sledgehammer, and a chalk drawing of a clown face on her garage with the tagline, “another job well done.”
For Kenneth and Margaret Karpa in Pittsburgh, china and photos of their daughter were damaged. Missing belongings included a coin collection and the family cat.
In Kansas City, Allen Danforth discovered his elderly parents’ furnishings — tables, chairs, family heirlooms — gone.
These homeowners allege in separate lawsuits that a contractor hired by a major bank to preserve abandoned properties against damage, mistakenly entered their homes while they were still occupied. In most cases, it appears that the contractor, known as a property inspector or property preserver, broke in after ignoring obvious signs of occupation: lights turned on, grass mowed and homes fully furnished.
“They need to be completely damn sure that the property is vacant,” said Richard Fersch, the sergeant in charge of foreclosures in the Allegheny County, Pa., Sheriff’s Office.
