Foreclosed properties still dragging down neighborhoods
The city of Los Angeles has kept a foreclosure registry for the last four years and, as of May 19, about 4,300 properties were included. Hardest hit are South L.A., the Eastside and parts of the San Fernando Valley. Properties on the list are almost twice as likely to have had at least one code enforcement complaint since the start of 2013. Read more: 'Blighted homes linger in L.A., frustrating neighbors.'
