Following a county home inspection service, the residence in Buckingham, Florida owned by Shirley Twombley was condemned and declared unsafe for occupation. The inspection, which was conducted on June 16, 2009, revealed that the dwelling was full of different items and various stuff.

According to reports, the inspection was conducted after the Lee County Animal Services heard of the many cats living in the house. Inspectors found a huge cat population when they visited, numbering up to 40. However, inspectors revealed that the cats are just one of the many problems with the house.

Inspectors stated that the condition of the dwelling is a clear case of hoarding, with various stuff littering the whole place. They also claimed that owner Twombley was not in the property when the inspection was conducted and was then staying in a hospital due to injuries. The state’s Department of Children and Families decided to intervene for the absent homeowner. The property was condemned the very same day.

Following the visit from county home inspection service officials and the subsequent condemnation of the property, Twombley’s home went into foreclosure and remained untouched and unoccupied for several months. In March 2010, an order of demolition was issued. Twombley was given 60 days following the order to get the house back in order and to meet the county’s security and safety codes.

The owner is fined $150 for each day that the home fails to meet county residential codes. However, local officials revealed that it is likely that the fines and the fee for the inspection will be waived once the cleanup is finished. The cleanup expenses, according to reports, will be shouldered by Freddie Mac.

Local press groups reported that no one seems to have an idea where Twombley is. Reporters revealed that they made several phone calls to Twombley’s relatives and even left a note at the house, but they received no response. A neighbor stated that she had seen the owner once when she got some personal stuff from the house.

The home inspection service to the residence of Twombley reportedly showed a home in a neglected condition. However, the owner is now being given time to start cleaning up the property and bring it up to scratch with area housing codes.
