DETROIT (AP) – The federal government now says a 101-year-old Detroit woman it promised could move back into her foreclosed home four months ago can’t return because of the building’s condition.

Texana Hollis was evicted Sept. 12 after her 65-year-old son failed to pay the mortgage. Two days later, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development said she could return.

But four months later, HUD says it won’t let Hollis return because the house is unsanitary and unsafe.    HUD doesn’t want to pay to fix up the house, and Department spokesman Brian Sullivan says it’s looking for outside agencies that might help get Hollis back home.
