One of our Detroit properties was actually sold a couple weeks ago. The new owner is tryin to sue us for unforeseen costs.
for background, I'm part of a coop that buys properties in Detroit, demos the building down to a foundation, then caps the foundation with a temporary ceiling an backfills it. To the average person, it looks like a vacant lot. But we sell these things like crazy to developers. They love buying entire neighborhoods where all they need to do is the above-grade work.
Anyway, we sold to a single investor that wanted this house for his home. They're just a couple people buyin a house, not our typical developer clientele that is aware of what's necessary to build in Detroit.
anyway, these guys dug up the foundation roof to find that the children's toy playhouse on the land was hiding a ladder that some people had used to enter the space... Long story short, they busted like 100 aliens living in te basement.
etroit is fucked up
