Nicole Curtis still cries foul after winning fight with land bank over Detroit house

Tall grass swayed in the breeze in front of the residence at 451 E. Grand Blvd. Saturday, all through a push convention named by HGTV star Nicole Curtis, who received the rundown home in a court fight earlier this thirty day period. 

Curtis, host of “Rehab Addict,” and her attorney, Jim Rasor of Royal Oak, explained they wanted to phone consideration to what they termed abuses by the Detroit Land Lender Authority, which claimed ownership of the dwelling following Curtis had acquired it in 2017.

Immediately after the press conference, HGTV "Rehab Addict" star Nicole Curtis enters her house at 451 E. Grand Blvd. in Detroit, Saturday afternoon, May 29, 2021.

Curtis also invited the community to go to an open property at the household starting at midday on Sunday, and mounted an American flag on the entrance porch in recognition of the Memorial Day weekend. 

A decide awarded the property in Islandview to Curtis on May possibly 21, closing out a a long time-extensive dispute with the Detroit Land Bank Authority over ownership. 

Curtis said she is “just just one of hundreds, maybe thousands of Detroiters who have missing their properties, perhaps illegally, to the Detroit Land Lender.”
