Property: Single-family-home in Lakewood, Los Angeles County, CA
Background: The hoarding within the home had become so severe that the single adult male owner resorted to sleeping outside on the back patio each night. The house and the backyard became a haven for rats, cats and opossums.
Resolution: The owner was able to salvage certain items and have them stored. The accumulation of trash and debris was removed and the pest problem was eradicated. The owner consented to the sale of the property to a local family and intended to use the sale proceeds to secure housing that better suits his needs.
