Help For Meth Lab Property Owners

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Jerry Becker and Associates


As a Realtor, if you have a client whose property was used for a meth lab
or if you are the owner of such a property, this may be of interest to you.  Property owner victims of meth labs have found the cost of cleaning up their properties to run into the tens of thousands of dollars.  To make matters worse, many insurance companies are refusing to pay the claims for these cost because they deem losses to be caused by an illegal activity, even when the property owner had no knowledge of what the tenants were up to.  There's a Denver law firm called Frankl Law Firm that has had success in winning court cases against insurance companies that refuse to pay these claims.  In fact, they're trying to carve out a niche practice in dealing with these types of cases.  Now, you may not be in Denver, however, many times companies that have success in certain areas of law tend to network and lend assistance to other legal firms around the country, that are engaged in similar defenses.  It may be worth your while to contact Frankl at 1-866-300-2051 and inquire if they can refer a law firm in your area.  Hopefully, it's a call you'll never have to make.

I have read many articles about Meth properties, it sounds like a nightmare.  Fortunately I, nor anyone I know, has come across one of these properties in my area.

It's a problem here in Washington as well Jerry, thanks for the info.

You know it's really a shame that their is enough potential business with meth homes that someone can carve out a niche.

I always put my clients first in any transaction!

That is very interesting. When I was in my 20s, I worked on abatement of asbestos from homes. It was hot and nasty work but the pay was excellent...
