Strange stories – House mistakenly demolished while owner on holidays

After spending “several weeks” renovating his Pittsburgh home, Andre Hall took a break for the holidays. When he returned he found a backhoe sitting where his house used to be. It seems that a demolition order that had been withdrawn by the court after Hall bought the house as a rehab project was mistakenly executed leaving the Hall family with nothing.

This isn’t the first time this kind of thing has happened. Here’s a similar story from Winnipeg where a prospective buyer apparently demolished a property before the purchase contract was signed.
