A woman discovered her Atlanta house had unintentionally been destroyed when she got back from vacation.
When Susan Hodgson arrived home from vacation, she saw a heap of debris in the place of the long-time family home, she told WAGA-TV.
‘I’m simply left with a big ol’ mess,’ Ms. Hodgson declared.
She claimed that while she was away, a neighbor contacted to inquire about hiring someone to demolish the abandoned house.
I told her “no,” and she said, “Well, there’s someone over here who just tore the entire house down,” according to Ms. Hodgson.
Ms. Hodgson claimed that once the neighbor approached the workers, she was instructed to “shut up and mind her own business.”
Ms. Hodgson dispatched a family member, who approached the workers and requested a permit.
When the home was destroyed, no one was residing there. We keep it boarded, covered, the grass mowed, and the yard tidy, according to Ms. Hodgson. Everything is in order and the taxes have been paid.
She said that she had not heard from the accountable firm.
It’s really difficult to imagine someone would just come and rip anything up, walk away from it, and not return to say “I’m sorry.” What should I do to resolve this. It happened by mistake. They gave me absolutely nothing, Ms. Hodgson claimed.
She said, “I think he owes us an apology, and he needs to fix the problem.”
A phone message left by the Associated Press was not immediately returned by the business. The business said in a statement to WAGA-TV that it is looking into the incident and trying to find a solution.
