sw10mm: I almost didn’t recognize that you were trying to attack Richmond, CA in that sleaze ball. First this applies only to property the banks are trying to steal, let lie dormant to depress property values, and take over everything. Second, the legal owner must agree (something never heard of before in imminent domain). Third, then the new mortgage holder will restructure the loan so there is a real chance of it being paid off – which was the American way between the banking practices of the melodrama and that of the kleptarchy under which we now live – essentially the New Deal period. I bet you are quaking in your boots that Richmond’s Green government might bring back democracy and free enterprise to a country now under a corporate dictatorship.
