FORT LAUDERDALE-321 NE 14th Street
The house is titled to HSBC Bank USA, National Association, Trustee. A real estate sign in front of the house in early March said it was offered for sale by Principal Realty, but the agency said it last had the listing in 2009 for its client Litton Loan Servicing, which is now defunct. Ocwen Financial Corporation now services Litton's loans.
"We get a lot of calls on assets we used to manage two and three years ago that still are abandoned," said Ray Orsini, Principal Realty manager for bank-owned properties. "It's a shame."
He said the calls come from potential buyers or local officials looking for who the owner of record is to file their liens or to at least notify them of pending code issues. "But the problem is, the previous owner doesn't exist anymore."
