I have always been in the assumption that when a house is owned by OSI and demolition pending, there is no way to save the house anymore. The vendors will slowely go empty and disapear and after that happens its going down. http://uo2.stratics.com/homes-and-decorations/housing-rules states: “Demolition Pending” Houses If your house is scheduled to decay but still has contract-vendors with unexpired contracts, the house will list as “Demolition Pending” and not fully decay until 9 days after those contracts expire. Houses with this status cannot be reclaimed, even by reactivating their accounts. These houses remain standing only to allow the contract-vendor owners to reclaim their vended inventory. When a house collapses, new houses cannot be placed on that lot for a random amount of time. Is there an exception to this rule, or is it outdated? The reason why I wonder is because on Atlantic a house (first west of trammel Yew gate) that went idoc, and then turned OSI because of the vendors. But instead of collapsing, after a period of time (all but one vendor disapeard) the house went back to player owned, same building/design/interior and same vendor on it. Is there a way to reacquire your home once it's in that status?
