Homeowners say houses were emptied before being foreclosed

Theft is theft.

ORLANDO, Fla. —

Many Americans have stories to tell about losing their homes to foreclosure. Channel 9 found out that some homeowners who haven’t yet been foreclosed have come home to find all their belongings gone.

“It was a crime because no one had permission to take those items from the house,” homeowner Bill Gullbrandson said.

Gullbrandson was in the early stages of foreclosure on his Wildwood home.

The house was still in his name when he said he walked inside and found that his belongings had been taken.

“How much did they take off with?” Channel 9’s Jamie Holmes asked.

“Approximately $6,000 worth of new furnishings and appliances that had been placed in the house,” said Gullbrandson.

The same thing happened to Jonathan Axtell.

In both cases, the men’s attorney claims that the items were taken by a clean-out company hired by the bank to secure the property.

  1. Gut wrenching – happens everyday – and there isn’t a damn thing anyone can do about it. They can take the bank and clean out company to court all they want. Until homeowners get pockets a deep as any bank none of us will win in court – ever!
