So this house seems to have been abandoned for over a year. I used to walk my dog by the house until I noticed nobody had mowed the lawn or trimmed the bushes in quite a while. Now I'm beginning to think its an incubator for ticks and other unwanted pests. I thought if a home is abandoned the mortgage company was supposed to send someone out keep up the property. All it does is make the rest of the houses Look like they are part of a unkempt neighborhood. Can anything be done?
