‘Mold house’ foreclosure auction canceled

The auction of the "mold house" at the courthouse today at 5pm has been canceled. The company in charge of auctioning the troubled dwelling declined to say why it had been canceled.

The house has been at the center of a spore war, in which the owners alleged in a 2005 Hook cover story that the previous owner, Steve Dudley, as well as the Real Estate III agent who sold the house, Sirlei Kaiser-Ramirez, among others, failed to disclose the presence of mold that would make the family sick.

Some of the parties to the transaction, including a home inspector, allege that they did properly disclose the potential mold problem.
