Elida, I had an extremely hard time trying to understand what you were saying but I think you were asking why more abandoned homes could not be filled with low income families willing to fix them up. I too have had the same thoughts as abandoned homes are a common sight here in SW Fla. I am always on the look out for the answer to this problem. Anyone else agree or have ideas?

Are we talking about low rent in exchange for general upkeep and maintenance, or just giving the house away outright? Either way, and I really am not trying to be a jerk, would you simply hand over a property you owned to someone who can't even formulate one intelligible sentence just because "they seem nice" . Honestly all you have to do is right click on all the red squiggly lines and let spell check do much of the work for you. Now if that is too much of a chore how can you trust that same person to not run the property further down in value, let alone fix it up? Don't get me wrong, some of the hardest workers I know can barley write their own name, and some of the laziest people I know have masters degrees. But to the outside viewer, the level of trust is usually greater for the better communicator.
At any rate, on it's face I think renting an abandoned home out at a lower rate or even free, in exchange for the tenant mowing the grass, shoveling, painting with landlord supplied paint, etc. is a great idea. However if the furnace or water heater goes bad, who should be on the hook to repair it? If it's the middle of winter and the tenant can't afford the repair bill then the owner pretty much has to flip the bill. If the tenant throws their back out shoveling is the landlord/bank going to get sued? With a good lawyer, a written contract is often not worth the paper it's written on. From that perspective it could cost the bank a lot more money trying to be the good Samaritan, rather than just let it sit and have it mowed once in awhile.

Nancy, I understand Florida or it may be the whole country is going to make all mortgage holders responsible for the homes after the previous tenants move out. They are also going to have to pay $200.00 registration fee with the government and a $10,000 fine if they don't register. This will make the mortgage holder responsible for the outside of the house. Pay someone or some maintenance company to cut the grass, trim the hedges, etc. (oh yea, if the home has a pool, they have to maintain that also). I really hope this helps all of us who are in financial straits now due to this economy, and myself included, due to major health issues. To young to get medacare and medicaid is usless unless you go to the hospital. Let us hope that those who made all this possible, (careless lenders)will do some real soul serching and make things right by giving credit to those who need it the most, not just the investors.

they are not complaining that the homes are 'unkempt'. They are curious as to why there are so many empty homes, that someone is obviously losing money on, when the home could simply be sold or rented cheap enough for low income families to afford, instead of the house just going empty.

I know right. There is a tore up house 1 minute from where my mother lives. My hubby and I can't afford it, cause his credit is a 572, and I have NO credit. Sorry cash is just so much better in my eyes. But yet the government, it is a HUD home, is going to let it sit there and ROT until someone wants to pay the 120,000 for it, and then the extra 20-50,000 to fix it up. It just sucks that they wont sale it for cheaper, or let it be a we pay them 600 a month, and they just act happy.
