A neighbor who lives near this home contacted us about the condition of the property. People have been breaking in via the rear fence, and the rear yard has become overgrown with weeds. It’s also a haven for trash and rats.

The home used to be a typical Baltimore rowhome as seen in the photo here (house on the right):

The house on the right is 214 S Eaton Street, before its "transformation"...

Here’s what someone thought would be an appropriate “rehab” of this rowhome in Highlandtown (again, it’s the home on the far right):

For whatever reason, I can’t imagine, the house never sold. Now it’s become a mess in the rear and a nuisance property. Here are a few photos of the rear of the property:

BCFD Was Here: 1523 Hazel Street

Property Address: 1523 Hazel Street, Baltimore, MD 21226

Property Owner: ETS Maryland, LLC, 3604 Eastern Avenue, #300, Baltimore, MD 21224 (charter has been forfeited, company is not in good standing)

ETS Maryland is one of the tax-sale foreclosure bidders that was controlled by former attorneys Anthony DeLaurentis, John Reiff, and John Reid before they were caught bid-rigging at municipal auctions and disbarred as a result. We’ve detailed their property purchases and noncompliance with the law several times. An order foreclosing the right of redemption on this property was issued in 2011 (Circuit Court case 24C10001905). In the four years since, nothing has been done to it, and no permits are on file. The city fire department has declared the house too unsafe for firefighters to enter, and have placed a red X placard on the front.
