DIAMOND, W.Va. (WSAZ)— A yard of a foreclosed home has neighbors on Kanawha Avenue in Diamond pleading for help.

According to neighbors, the grass has not been cut in at least three months.

“We're tired of it,” neighbor Betty Holmes said Saturday. ”We're tired of seeing this stuff.”

Holmes and neighbor Wendy Armstrong said they have been calling the number posted on the window and door for months but continue to receive the same response.

“We keep getting the weekend, the weekend, and it's just the runaround,” Armstrong said.

LPS, the company posted on the window, is responsible for the home.

Attempts to reach a supervisor at LPS were unsuccessful Saturday.

Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper said in a phone call Saturday his office is aware of the issue of foreclosed homes that are left in disrepair.

"It has become a real terrible problem and the neighbors suffer,” Carper said, adding for those in Kanawha County wanting action for a similar issue to call the Kanawha County Commission’s Office at: 304-357-0109.
