See, Click, Fix: Home In Disrepair

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Frustration is probably the number one reason folks contact John Carter and Christine Nelson about problems they encounter and that's certainly the case in this See, Click, Fix.

We take you to a house in northwest Charlotte on Southminster Lane just off Sunset Road.

A blue tarp covers the roof of the house and it's clear it's seen better days...both the roof and the tarp.

The yard out back is not in the best shape and the neighbors say they've been mowing the front yard.

According to neighbors, the people who lived in the house moved out two years ago and it wasn't long after that, crews put the tarp over the roof.  But they say they haven't seen anyone since.

Neighbors say the house is an eyesore and they're concerned about the impact that will have on trying to sell other property in the area.

According to Mecklenburg County Real Estate Lookup the home is owned by two individuals.

A sign posted on a window indicates the house is for sale and anyone interested should contact the Bank of America real estate office.  The sign also says to report any issues with the home, contact field services with Bank of America.

Neighbors say that's exactly what they've done but haven't gotten any help.

The neighbors say they also contacted the city but were told nothing could be done.

Frustration mounting, they decided to contact See, Click, Fix.

And we're getting action.

I contacted the city's code enforcement division.  A manager tells me a team is being sent out to evaluate the property and take appropriate enforcement action if necessary.

I'll keep you posted as we work to have this problem See, Click, FIXED.
