Property Address: 2726 Fox Street, Baltimore, MD 21211
Received an interesting email this morning from Syed Shah, one of two founders of Pizza Bolis and the now-former owner of the property detailed above:

Name: Syed Shah
Comment: Hello you guy’s are making a mockery of my restate company. If you have any problems with me
please contact which is my cell [REDACTED]
I have my permits and it takes time to work on these houses. Thing is these houses you posted on the website are not even worked on yet. I bought the houses in that condition and they will be worked on and will be improved over time. So please again contact me at [REDACTED]
So we can get this matter of false judgement on my company to rest.
After doing some checking, it appears that as of yesterday (August 31, 2012), Mr. Shah’s real estate company no longer owns the property. The City’s receiver for the V2V program — One House At A Time, Inc. — now owns it. My response to Mr. Shah:

Apparently as of yesterday, your property at 2726 Fox Street has gone into receivership, and you no longer own it. I will post an update with this information.
My advice? Don’t wait so long to act on a property. You owned that property for seven years before ever filing for a single exterior permit, according to the city’s permits website.
Thank you for your email — hopefully now the property will be purchased by someone who will fix it up quickly and become a responsible community member.
