Woman devastated after coming back from holiday to find her home demolished

Woman devastated after coming back from holiday to find her home demolished

A woman from Atlanta came back from holiday to find her home had been demolished.

A woman was left devastated after coming back from holiday to find her home had been demolished.

Susan Hodgson, from southwest Atlanta, was on holiday when she received a phone call from her neighbour who asked if someone had been hired to bulldoze her house.

Hodgson recalled the neighbour saying: "Did you hire somebody to tear your house down next door to me?"

She said: "It's been boarded up for about 15 years and I said 'no' and she said 'well there's someone over here who just demolished the whole house and tore the entire house down.'" Yikes.

When the workers from Atlanta-based You Call It, We Haul It were confronted by the neighbour, they allegedly told her to 'shut up and mind her own business'.

Hodgson then opted to send a family member down to the home to ask for a permit.

After the workers checked over the permit, they allegedly admitted they were at the wrong address.

Thankfully no one was in the home when it was demolished.

"It's been boarded up about 15 years, and we keep it boarded, covered, grass cut, and the yard is clean. The taxes are paid and everything is up on it," Hodgson said.

"It's just hard to believe someone thinks they have the right to just come and tear something up and walk away from it and didn't come back and say I'm sorry.

"What do I need to do to fix this. It was an accident. They didn't give me nothing.

"It's just a grumbled mess. The whole house is tumbled in and a big ole mess. He didn't haul nothing off."

"I think he owes us an apology, and he needs to fix the problem. He needs to fix the problem," Hodgson concluded.

You Call It, We Haul It told Fox 5 Atlanta that the incident is 'under investigation' and that they are 'working to rectify the situation'.

In a news report on 22 October, the family said they are yet to hear from the company.
