Wells Fargo Code Violations Contact
Post and stock photo by the Hawthorne Hawkman
I was at a meeting today with some higher-ups at Wells Fargo, discussing ways that they can work together with the Northside Community Reinvestment Coalition to help combat the foreclosure crisis. Since the discussion is ongoing, details of that meeting aren't ready for broad discussion here or elsewhere.
However, they did give one bit of very useful information to us regarding contact information for any properties they own that have code violations. So if you see a vacant property, check both the city website and the county website (if the info is different, the county website is usually more accurate). If the owner shows up as Wells Fargo, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They try to respond within 48 hours.
(Do not click "read more," but do also contact 311 as well regarding such violations.)
