This home was originally posted in 2011, and sadly — conditions have gotten worse.

Property Address: 1117 Carroll Street, Baltimore, MD 21230

Property Owner: Irene Davis, same address. Interesting to note, in 2009, Heidi Kenny (of ground rent and tax foreclosure fame) filed to foreclose on this home, yet the case was subsequently dismissed.)

The glass has been smashed out and it appears people have been coming and going through this basement window.

1117 Carroll Street, rear yard is still a mess -- a dumping ground for trash and household items. The yard is so overgrown you can't see the house.

This property is the subject of a foreclosure case from 2013 that was recently reopened.  There have been no changes made to this property other than the tree that is now growing in the basement and sprouting out one of the windows.  Hopefully this property can be torn down or rehabbed, as it’s an eyesore on an otherwise decent block.

The last permit on this house expired in 2008. You can see the original post from 2010 here.

Update: 1000 Scott Street

This is an interesting property — a small apartment building in a block with single-family homes.  It caught fire a few years ago and has sat deteriorating ever since.  The property has now become a problem for the home next door, and the city has filed for receivership.

What makes it interesting — the guy who currently owns it, Brian Winfield, purchased the home after the fire and never did anything with it.  He also purchased other homes (some through the city’s Vacants to Value auctions) and has now been banned from participating in future auctions, due to his inability to rehab the homes in a timely fashion.

Update: 606 Wyeth Street

You can read the original post here.

On October 11, 2013, Baltimore Housing filed an injunction against the owner of this property, Patricia Cato of Brooklyn, NY.  (See District Court Case 010100240042013.)

Hopefully soon this property will either be repaired or sold to someone who will be a responsible property owner.

Update: 604 Wyeth Street

You can find the original post here.

Baltimore Housing filed for an injunction against the property owner, Stanley Rochkind and his company, “604 Wyeth, LLC” on October 11, 2013 — see District Court case 010100240052013.  Hopefully the city will win, and the owner will be forced to either clean up the house or put it into receivership so it can be sold to a more responsible owner.
