Nuisance Abatement Defense
With upwards of 1000 new nuisance abatement cases per year, The City of Toledo is one of the more aggressive and proactive jurisdictions in Ohio with respect to remediation of nuisance conditions. No two nuisance orders are the same, and often times a property held in trust or that has been foreclosed on lands the title owner in court. While it often seems counter intuitive, there is currently no legislation that requires a foreclosing bank to take title to the property. As such, former mortgagors can find themselves in a confusing and frustrating position wherein they must maintain a property that has been foreclosed on. Other times, a homeowner is simply trying to negotiate an insurance settlement for a fire damaged property, and in the interim, is summoned into Court. However you have ended up in Court with a charge of failure to abate a nuisance, competent representation is indispensable. I have spent significant time learning the ins and outs of the Toledo Municipal Code regarding nuisance properties, as well as available defenses.
