30 years abandon = re do from the ground.

buying with value of the land minus the demolition cost should be ok

30 years? ohmy.gif

Sounds like he went bankrupt and fled the country or something. hmm.gif

I'm also interested to know more about this case as back at my hometown, there is an abandoned 2-storey detached house right next to my parents' house. The previous owner was some funeral parlour owner who used this house to store his coffins until a lot of them can be seen at both the front and back of the house. Not sure why he left 2 years ago but I believe one of the reasons are the neighbours around his house complained about seeing his coffins from their backyards.

The house is left uninhabited ever since he left and now there are vegetation growing everywhere and doors and windows are dismantled by looters. I wonder if it was ever auctioned but even if it is, it doesn't seem like there are any takers. Now my parents have to deal with this eyesore next door. sad.gif

how do you know that is was abandoned? did it put up a lelong sign?
anything more than 20 yrs will require major renovation so unless it is below market value..may still can consider..

if the council or bank put up sign for lelong..then confirm for sale..
most likely that the owner either die or cabut and left his hse behind..
maybe your parent hse can do a bit renovation to cover the wall so it will not be so obvious??
or can report to council if the hse may cause hazard to neighbours..like loose wiring, bushes that attract snakes etc??

If the place haunted.. effective way is fully torn down the house and flatten it. Let it expose under the hot sun 77 49 days and totally no need any ghost busters or ghost catcher/slayer. Quite effective.. a few sibeh famous haunted houses after did this... the owner stay until today.

Before that... the place keep changing owner. Before torn down, They even tried to rent it out to bangala and mamak try to scare off the bad spirit inside but useless. The mamak told him cannot tahan the kacau also fast fast moved out.

The topic changed from abandoned to hunted house.. fo haunted, normally the house condition still will be reasonable. Those house i mentioned are already partially thorn down. No door, no fence, half of the roof gone. Until one house grow tree on the roof, like angkor wat. And the local councils do not take any action to remove the tree, until one of neighbours do it by him self. Why shold keep these kinds houses if it is hazard to komuniti.

sorry for changing the topic...
if is is a hazard can complaint to the council..but need more people to lodge complaint in order for them to take action.
the more people complain, the faster they will act..and if can find their page in FB..complaint there also..
