Las Vegas Real Estate Snafu Evicts Condo Owner

 

Coming back from a snowboarding trip, a student at the College of Southern Nevada finds only a satellite dish and a curtain rod remaining in her condo. A Henderson Real estate group sent a crew to evict a foreclosed property, but they went to the wrong unit.

Nilly Mauck's living room, dining room, bedroom and computer are said to be in a dump in Sloan.

A new Nevada law allows triple damages for personal property lost due to hasty and inappropriate actions taken by realtors. The law, new since October 2009, awarded $2.2 million in a similar suit against Country Wide Home Loans.

  That  
 
would really stink - for all parties involved. The lawful resident loses all her stuff, and the real estate company loses triple damages and suffers the bad publicity.

If you read the article you´ll see "had fallen behind on her mortgage and had agreed with her bank to list the property for a short sale". Funny how she has money for snowboarding, though.

That being said, she is still a victim in this case and is due full damages. Guess they should make a law saying that personal effects and furniture must be held in storage for 90 days before disposal vs. just hauling the stuff off to the dump and local pawn shop.
