In August 2010 we found out that our landlord Ken and Thu Green had let the house we wented go into default for 8 mos and had been lying to us and collecting our rent money $1900. a month. People were taking photos of our house and that got us suspspcious. We went to a real estate agent who confirmed that the house was in default and would be sold at auction in Decemebr 2010. We were also getting letters from the bank at that time .
We began looking for anothet place to rent, and the firstplace we saw had asked for Mr. Greens phone number. He DENIED that we were his tenants so we could keep living there and pay the rent. We did not get that house.
The house across the street became available and we aranged to move ther as soon as possible even though the law states we could stay at our current residence up to 90 days, but that was impossible since the greens refused to tell us who we should pay the rent to.
The greens went tp Fast eviction services to aapply for an unlawful detainer, we got a paper in the mail, not an actual notice from the court to either pay septembers rent OR move out within 3 days.
We moved across the streetSept 13 2012. The notice was dated Sept !0 2010,
I imediatly sent copiesz of our new lease and my electric bill to them.
Heard nothing about it til last week 6/19/2013 when I received a notice from my work that I was being garnished for a judgment of &4577.98 plus $ interest per day!
FOR WHAT?? the judgement had been entered 03/02/11 # mos after the Greens house had been sold at auction.
I immedaitly contacted Bouzanes office where I was told to send all my documents to them and they would look it over and could remove the garnishment. I complied, sending all the evidence I had. They advised me ti=o file a claim of exemption which I am still waiting an answer on. I work part time, my husband is on unemployemt the reason they couldn’t go after him.
I called one week later and was treated like garbage, I was hung up on by London, and Kelly his superviseor told me to seek legal council AND dont CALL THEM AGAII dont have money to get a lawyer over this, but I will fight them anyway I can.I know I am not the first victim or the last of these shysters and I need help, Legal if possible. Please help me. I am devastated by this, I dont want this on my record.
